INQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM

ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

Limited only by their imagination--which seemingly knew no bounds--jewelers of the Art Nouveau period created jewels of breathtaking beauty and form. Presaging the geometric Art Deco forms of the following decade, this pendant, an artfully fashioned arrow subtly gleaming with soft pink and green enamel, is punctuated by a vivid fuchsia-colored ruby and shimmers with slender platinum columns set with tiny rose-cut diamonds. Adding a final flourish, and a little movement, a luminous freshwater wing pearl dangles below. Exquisite. Hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold and platinum, 18-inch chain. Condition note: Enamel shows some wear commensurate with age of piece - circa 1900-1910.

About Art Nouveau Jewelry

Looking to go organic? Bummed out (with good reason) by the Industrial Revolution, Art Nouveau makers embraced the natural world and a return to the hand-craftsmanship of an earlier time. Their overlap with both the Victorian and Edwardian eras resulted in a great deal of cross-pollination. Though relatively short in its purest form, Art Nouveau’s flowing lines continued to weave their way into fine jewelry.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
