Krementz Art Nouveau Aquamarine Brooch
Krementz & Co. of Newark, New Jersey had a penchant for designing and producing exquisite jewelry using precious metals and gems. In business from the middle years of the 19th century, the company prided themselves on showcasing those pieces with excellent workmanship, designing and detailing took precedence.
The Art Nouveau movement afforded a firm such as Krementz to utilize their skills to the best advantage. Fluidity of form and rhythmic content was achieved with a minimalist’s use of 14k yellow gold. Larger semi-precious gems such as the square cut natural aquamarine of an estimated 1.7 carats and a small old European cut diamond of an approximate .03 carats more than adequately included a softened pastel glow without the flamboyance of excess.
The incorporation of lyrical stylized flower forms employing trefoil heads of natural freshwater pearls and sinuous curving leaves of soft yellow and teal enamel over gold provide a refreshing change from the typical.
