Story

Plique-à-jour enamel decoration is one of the more scarce enamel techniques. Its use in a ring is even more scarce as it is often seen in other jewelry. In an classic example of the Art Nouveau (circa 1890-1915) this technique uses semi opaque or transparent enamels set within metal frameworks akin to stained glass. As no backing is applied, some light can shine through the enameled sections.

Art Nouveau design reigns true in 14k rose gold with the poetic suggestion of an iris. Its free-flowing curvaceous lines contain a restless force which somehow becomes a balance composition and asymmetry with the center slanted to sit off axis on the finger. The artful use of green enamel plique-à-jour and two (2) single cut diamonds of an estimated total diamond weight of .12 carats reflect the design concept of intrinsic versus extrinsic worth.

Please note that we found several other Art Nouveau enamel rings in a small collection which soon will be listed.
