Made in 18ct yellow gold in the late 1800's, this Art Nouveau ring would date from the mid-1890's and is set in the centre with a wonderful natural pearl that really stands out.
The formation of this pearl is just fabulous and is a natural pearl as opposed to being a cultured pearl.
At each end there is a diamond to add to the sparkle of the ring and these two diamonds total 0.33 carats.
From one end to the other the ring measures 30.9mm and sits so well on the finger and really accentuates the hand.
So comfortable on any finger, this Art Nouveau ring is so charming and like so many other antique rings is so unique and special.
With elegant feminine flowing designs this Art Nouveau pendant was made in 9ct rose gold around 1895.
Set with 4 pieces of turquoise it is also set with two natural pearls that are each set into their own rose gold wire basket setting again with a very lovely flowing design.
From left to right at the widest part, the pendant measures 19mm across by 46mm from the bottom to the very top of the bail.
The rose gold looks so soft and warm against the skin and combined with the natural pearls and turquoise with the very elegant design all go to make this such a charming antique Art Nouveau pendant to wear and love anytime of the day or night.
Dating from around 1895, this bangle from the Art Nouveau period embraced not only designs inspired from nature but also the use of the hard to find green gold.
On the front of the bangle is a wonderful floral design typical of Art Nouveau jewellery.
However the charming aspect of this is the use of rose gold and then green gold for the leaves.
Green gold was made using cadmium during the alloying process and it wasn't realised for a few years that this chemical made it toxic while it was in this stage.
However once cooled down from its molten stage it is perfectly safe to touch, polish and of course wear and is of course why green gold is so hard to find in jewellery due to its brief use during this time.
The bangle itself measures 2.6cm wide and is hinged allowing it to sit nice and close to the wrist and with the sterling silver and combination of rose and green gold is so easy to wear with so many outfits.
With a fabulous design combined with rose and green gold, this is certainly a fabulous piece that will always be a talking point whenever it is worn.
