Art Nouveau literally translates to new art, which describes this short but sweet jewelry period perfectly.  The Art Nouveau Era lasted from 1895-1910 and produced some of the most unique, creative, and even risqué jewelry of all time.

While Belle Époque jewelry was being produced during the same time as Art Nouveau jewelry, they couldn't be more opposite.  Art Nouveau jewelry designers rebelled against the monochromatic designs of Belle Époque jewelry and opted for colorful and creative, handmade designs inspired by nature and/or the female figure.  Art Nouveau jewelry was so creative and perhaps ahead of its time that it wasn't actually appreciated by the masses until years later.

Being offered is a beautifully handcrafted, genuine Art Nouveau Era antique lavalier pendant.  The piece features 3 very brilliant old mine cut diamonds mounted in buttercup basket settings.  The pendant is very light and airy, with a little wire filigree work and scroll detailing.  The reverse side of the bail is hallmarked, "14".
