Art Nouveau Style Plique-a-Jour Dragonfly Brooch
$4,750.00
Artfully recreated late last century in ethereal Art Nouveau style, the "gossamer wings" (thank you, Cole Porter) of this classic dragonfly brooch are colored in translucent stained glass window-like shaded green and blue plique-à-jour enamel, outlined in diamonds, and are spring-loaded en tremblant* for a fun and fabulous effect. An opal and diamond abdomen and tail, and tiny cabochon emerald eyes add the colorful finishing touches. Lightly and lovingly crafted in two-tone gold. 1 5/8 inch wingspan. *En tremblant is a French term – meaning “to tremble”. It was first used to describe 18th and 19th-century jewelry where parts of the diamond set pieces were attached to a trembler to create movement in the jewel when worn - AJU Antique Jewelry University.
