ABOUT THIS BROOCH

A water lily? Sea anemone? Jellyfish? Well, some species of aquatic flower or creature with sinuous tentacles was designed by the Thomas Brogan Company to float and shimmer on your favorite garment as a wonderful wearable work of art from the heart of the Art Nouveau period, circa 1900-1910. Hand fabricated in finely textured 14K yellow gold, it gleams with lustrous freshwater pearls, is dotted with tiny twinkling single-cut diamonds, and measures just shy of 1 1/2 inches.

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.
