ART NOUVEAU JEWELRY
Circa 1900-1915 So named for England’s King Edward, this era brought forth jewelry known for its use of platinum, pearls and di- amonds. Its hallmarks are exquisite craftsmanship — often made with plat- inum — and a feminine flair, especial- ly its garland styles embellished with garlands and flowers in invisible set- tings. Pearl brooch/pendant with rubies and diamonds.
Circa 1895-1910 Art Nouveau jewelry was a rebellion against the more complex designs of the mid and late Victorian period. It was also a movement toward the hand- made, with silver, enamels and moon- stones combined in organic forms to represent insects, plants and flowers. René Lalique dragonfly brooch.
Circa 1840-1890 Queen Victoria, who reigned over the United Kingdom for almost 64 years, greatly influenced much of the fash- ion in the world. Initially, sentimental jewelry with floral motifs and symbol- ic themes flourished. The middle of the century brought the Grand Period, with its many revival styles, including Goth- ic and Renaissance. Late in the century, the Aesthetic Period blossomed. During this time, gilded metal, rolled gold and manufactured gold-plating techniques were perfected and gems such as ci- trines, amethysts and garnets were pop- ular. With the death of Prince Albert in 1861, the queen went into mourning for years — which resulted in black jewelry becoming in vogue. Engraved bow brooch with turquoise.
