The Art Nouveau era took place towards the end of the 1800s and beginning of the 1900s. The Art Nouveau era was characterized by several different movements that took place or began during this era. For instance, the Aesthetic period would have been culminating towards the end of the nineteenth century, though it's influence on Art Nouveau is clear as the two styles both share a passion for light and airy pieces that focus on the intrinsic beauty of the piece rather than overwhelming it with jewels. The Art Nouveau era would have also been influenced by the Jugendstil movement, which was occurring at the same in Germany, both being stylistically driven by the natural world. Finally, the Arts and Crafts movement arose out of the same sentiment as the Art Nouveau era as they both represented a desire to turn away from the industrial and urban and return to the peace of days before, which is represented in the presence of pastoral scenes and earth tones in their respective pieces of jewelry. The Aesthetic movement influenced the lightweight and airy appearance of this item as well as the dangling portions of the pendant. This pendant was also inspired in part by the Etruscan revival which started during the early nineteenth century and continued into the twentieth, inspired by archaeological improvements and discoveries. The Etruscan revival movement was characterized by mimicking their use of intricate gold designs, beautiful beading, and jewelry-making techniques such as repousse, filigree, and granulation. The pendant is composed of 14k rose gold filled over a base metal. This pendant was made using the repousse technique. The technique consists of hand hammering precious metal into the desired shape. The shape of the pendant appears to have been in some way inspired by the design of the fleur de lis, though there are no actual fleur de lis motifs present on the pendant. Instead, the pendant mimics the floral motif of the fleur de lis with long lines and scroll-like patterns. The pendant is adorned with hand-chased intricate details. Three teardrop-shaped floral motif pendants hang from the bottom of the main pendant. The chain of the necklace also has a 14k rose gold fill. The necklace has a wearable length of 19" which means it falls between the bust and the collarbone, just above the heart. This gorgeous piece is not one to be forgotten and is the perfect marriage of Aesthetic movement jewelry and Etruscan design. Don't miss your opportunity to own this incredible piece of history. Damage: Age appropriate wear. The parts of the teardrop-shaped pendants are separating slightly and the base metal is showing through in some places. The price of this item has been reduced to reflect this. *This listing is for the item only.

This era focused on women and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often large. Enamel was a common material used in Art Nouveau jewelry as the period was more about the importance of the design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period happened before the start of the first World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewelry. The Aesthetic period, 1885 – 1901, features simple jewelry designs and refined artistic taste. Jewelry designers moved to using soft curves and natural shapes and subtle coloring. This period came as a response to Victorians becoming disillusioned with previous jewelry periods that featured more elaborate designs in fashions and furnishings. Archaeological revival jewelry was inspired by the excavations and discoveries of Roman, Byzantine, Egyptian, and Etruscan sites in the 18th and 19th Centuries. These archaeological digs uncovered beautiful works of decorative arts, giving jewelers a glimpse into the past for inspiration for contemporary designs. Some of the revival styles incorporate the use of filigree and granulation decorations. The revival styles emphasized the contrast between antiquity and modernity, with jewelers of the modern world borrowing motifs and techniques from the ancients, to perfect with advanced technologies and incorporate into modern designs. Etruscan revival jewelry swept into popularity in the early 1800s with the Victorian era discovery of Etruscan tombs just outside of Rome in Italy. These archaeological digs unearthed beautiful golden jewelry that had been meticulously ornamented with tiny gold beads, featuring flowing geometric shapes, celestial motifs, and a plethora of sacred and Greco-Roman mythological figures. The techniques of repoussé, filigree, and granulation are all attributed to the Etruscans. Jewelers all over the world avidly began to attempt to replicate these ancient techniques, changing the way fine jewelry was made for many years. Repoussé began as an ancient metalworking technique dating as far back as the 3rd century BC, involving malleable metal that was hammered onto the reverse side to create an image on the front. Examples are found all over the world; Greece, Egypt, and even the Hopewell periods in the American southeast. Reverse side hammering was also used to add detail to the front, creating intricate patterns using grooves, indentations, and channeling. The piece was then carefully polished to create a hollow, eye-catching treasure. Chasing is a metalworking technique that uses a nail-like tool and hammer to hand etch patterns onto a metal surface. This process creates a design that is sunk into the front of the surface using indentations, grooves, and channels. Chasing is thousands of years old and was very difficult and time-consuming technique that is still used by metalsmiths today.
