Holbeinesque

Holbeinesque (“in the manner of Holbein”) jewelry became popular around 1870 and can be characterized by a large oval gemstone in the center of polychrome enamel work. These neo-renaissance items were inspired by the designs of the famous, German, artist Hans Holbein the younger (c. 1497-1543).

Below are some designs by Holbein:
