Jewellery Periods – Art Nouveau Jewellery (1895-1910)

No other art form has celebrated the love for the unique, magical, and even erotic the way that Art Nouveau jewellery did. Translating to New Art in French, this short but impactful design period aimed to find an original way to class beauty through entirely new principles.

Let’s take a leap in time and explore this magnificent form of jewellery art that continues to awe both enthusiasts and mere viewers to this day.
