Art Nouveau Sapphire Brooch

Art Nouveau sapphire and pearl brooch. (J9240)

Sapphires and Pearl!

A dramatic Art Nouveau brooch with dark sapphires and a pearl set amid flowing golden curves and beautifully detailed acanthus leaves.  The overall form brings to mind an exotic moth or winged creature, or perhaps it is a rare evening flower beginning to unfold.  A wonderful example of the Art Nouveau taste for ambiguous organic forms and dramatically flowing curves.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

The reverse of the brooch is beautifully crafted in 14kt gold with a sturdy frame supporting the curvaceous design.  At some point in the past the original clasp of the brooch was replaced with a sturdy safety clasp to assure that the jewel remains securely attached when worn on a blouse, jacket lapel or hat.  A curving chatelaine hook  below allows a small pendant or watch to be suspended from the bottom of the brooch.
