Lavish forms of femme fatales, flowers and ethereal mythological creatures fueled the imagination of the designers of Art Nouveau jewelry.
Here a glorious 14k yellow gold dragon sensuously wends around to form a circular pendant. Contained within, the dynamic compressed energy of the mythological beast presses against itself as it moves to the strains of a hypnotic melody heard only by the phantasmagorical form.
With a reverse as intriguing and beautiful as the front, the finely modelled and detailed image displays an open mouth to reveal a swirled tongue grasping a .17 carat old mine cut diamond (H-I color; SI2-3 clarity).
The scaled body gives rise to reptilian allegories as the basilisk is swathed in nature’s foliage as an attempt at camouflage. Note how the tail blends into the acanthus leaves.
