Art Nouveau coral cameo of Diana set in 14kt gold brooch (J5269).

Diana, Goddess of the Moon!


The soft pink tones of angel skin coral beautifully carved into a cameo of Diana, goddess of the hunt, moon and child birth.  Flanked by golden sea horses,  the cameo is set in an Art Nouveau bezel accented with stylized palmettes or lotus blossoms.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

During the Art Nouveau era jewelers created extraordinary jewels that wedded myth, fantasy and nature into works of captivating beauty.  This brooch is a striking example.

The back of the brooch shows the sturdy bezel that protects the coral cameo and surrounding gold work.  The pin stem is securely held by an early safety clasp dating from the decades around 1900.  At the top of the brooch is a small collapsible bail which allows the cameo to be worn as a pendant.  The bail is hinged so that it can be fold down and hidden from sight when the jewel is worn as a brooch.
