Lyrical Art Nouveau Diamond Ruby Pendant
Art Nouveau has wonderful rhythmic lines, asymmetry and a stylized organic content incorporated into its basic forms. This turn of the 20th century example shows how a pendant can display simultaneously both a lyrical harmonious balance and asymmetry. Note the overall sense of a budding flower with leaves portrayed as scrolling elements. Sinuous curved lines show a free-flowing sense of whimsy and an underlying dynamic movement creating a mood which seems almost alive with energy.
A flowerhead pendant drop completes the balance as white gold of 18k tops 18k yellow gold studded with thirty-five (35) rose cut diamonds of an estimated total .21 carats, seven (7) channel set natural rubies and one round faceted natural ruby. A modern silver chain accompanies the Art Nouveau pendant.
