Story

The asymmetrical aesthetic and sensual curves characterize this circa 1910 pendant as Art Nouveau. Jewelers of this era were masters at creating small delicate realistic flower images from gold and polychromatic enamel.

The free-form stem of the translucent enamel over 14k yellow gold flower centered with an old European cut diamond of about .05 carats curves and twists to enclose itself in a metaphor of dynamic movement and controlled restraint. The pastel hues of the enameled flower create a sense of tranquility while the more vibrant colors reverberate with tension. A natural dog tooth pearl (untested but assumed natural due to age and examination) completes the pendant with its promise of movement. A later date 14k yellow gold chain accompanies the pendant.
