Sensuous Art Nouveau Peridot & Pearl Necklace
Peridots, amethysts and pearls played a predominant role in the choice of gems employed by Art Nouveau jewelers. The characteristic organic conformation of this necklace with its flamboyantly curved lines creates a flat decorative pattern of a stylized flower replete with leaves, roots and buds and flower heads.
The distinctive whiplash form, so indicative of the style creates a lyrical movement translated in 15k yellow gold dotted with eighty-six (86) delicate natural seed pearls in various sizes of 2.3 mm or less. The fluidity and gracefulness of the line of the necklace is emphasized with the central placement of a prong set square European cut peridot of an estimated 2.15 carats and claw set pear shaped peridot drop of about 1.45 carats. All enhanced with the addition of a fragile 9k gold link chain
