Story

When surveying influences that led up to the Art Nouveau period, the presence of nature pervades many jewelry examples.

Whether from a voyage for botany, or on a personal grand tour, acknowledgment of the natural world became a part of the day-to-day experience of art and culture during the 19th century.

Beautiful craftsmanship and design flood the senses in this precious gem-encrusted lizard brooch. Whimsy aside, the backdrop is 14k rose gold. Upon that canvas of precious metal rests grass-green, natural demantoid garnets lined with creamy pearls.

Fine demantoids hold that intense green no matter their size. Two ruby eyes compliment the green hues.

So emblematic of the real creature, this one is coiled up nearly head touching tail. This is both a brooch and a watch hanger a form so prevalent around the turn of the 20th century.

Two ruby cabochons, total weight .01 carats.
