Story

In plique-à-jour, transparent enamels are set within a pierced metal framework similar to stained glass. Light can shine through each section, as the technique employs no backing. Quite difficult and fragile to achieve, the Riker Brothers of Newark were able to develop a more efficient method of the technique.

Although this 14k yellow gold pendant appears to have been made circa 1935, it encompasses the artistry and craftsmanship associated with Art Nouveau. It depicts the profile and body of a woman in a flowing gown gazing outwardly towards a vista of plique-à-jour enamel in shades of green and aqua with hints of pomegranate red. A wreath or tiara set with four (4) accent diamonds is entwined within her flowing hair.

Date: Circa 1935.
