This original Art Nouveau antique pendant is a remnant of fine art that dates back to the historical and changing style of the time. Art Nouveau literally translates to 'New Style' in French, and it was a movement that became the most popular at the turn of the 20th Century.
The pendant is in remarkably excellent condition for something that dates back C.1900's.
Made of 14ct yellow gold, this pendant is of French origin and is made in a round medallion style with a casted image profile of a beautiful and highly aristocratic woman.
These types of 'medallion' casted pendants were popular during the time and were often produced in varying qualities up until the first World War, however this particular piece is very meticulously made with incredible attention to detail.
You can see the raised profile depicting the soft curves of the beautiful woman and each strand of hair is so defined and waves so naturally. Her hair is tied with a hairpiece made of marcasites styled into a top knot bun, with even more marcasites adorning her neck in a choker style necklace.
The original jeweller was able to capture the essence of movement in her clothes and the free flowing ribbon from her hair - a clear indication of his truly skilled workmanship in creating such fine jewellery.
To own a piece such as this is to have piece of history in your own jewellery collection.
There is nothing else quite like it, so make it yours today before someone else does.
