Art Nouveau Plique-a-Jour Necklace and Earrings
ABOUT THIS JEWELRY
Flower garlands are delightful, symbolizing love, peace, purity, and passion. Alas, they fade and fall apart. Not this one. Exquisitely crafted in 18K gold, this delightful Art Nouveau necklace is adorned with beautifully burnished diamond-accented gold roses, connected by graceful swags of fine cable chain dotted with tiny natural pearls. Centering this golden garland is a trio of roses--sparkling with diamonds and embellished with a rose drop--both of which are subtly colored with translucent, sage green plique-à-Jour enamel. An enduring beauty--with rare matching plique-à-Jour earrings! Circa 1900. Necklace measures 19 1/2 inches.
