Baubles, Bling and the Latest Things

Art Nouveau… these two words translate to mean new art, or a new style.  The years from 1890-1910 have been dubbed the Art Nouveau period.  Offering a more natural aesthetic, the era was a breath of fresh air after the Victorian years.  

Telltale characteristics of Art Nouveau jewelry nearly always include curving, sinuous lines.  This came to be known as the whiplash line.  It suggested natural, organic movement.  Whether it be in the soft waves of a woman’s hair or the botanical beauty of floral vines – the whiplash line defined the ultra feminine vibe of the time.  

This stunning necklace made from the rich warm tones of 14-karat yellow gold features a curvaceous center.  Twin loops form the structure which hold the entire piece together.  Fringe-like dangles protrude from the midpoint and continue at regular intervals.  

Each one showcases a deep purple round amethyst gemstone and a unique natural freshwater pearl.  These seven strands move enticingly with the body, fulfilling the Art Nouveau fantasy and bringing the overall design to life.  Art Nouveau style offers voluptuous curves paired with deeply saturated gems and jewels.  It’s womanly.  It’s lovely.  It’s available.  Make it yours for just $1,850.00.
