Art Nouveau Sapphire Brooch
Sapphires and Pearl
| An elegant Art Nouveau brooch with dark
sapphires and a small pearl set amid flowing curves and draping
acanthus leaves. The evocative style of the jewel
brings to mind an exotic moth spreading its wings in the night
or, perhaps, a rare nocturnal flower blooming in the
moonlight. A beautiful example of the Art Nouveau taste
for otherworldly fantasy and dream-inspired symbolism. Created
in 14kt gold, circa 1900.
The reverse of the brooch is beautifully crafted with a sturdy frame following the flowing curves of the design. At some point in the past the clasp of the brooch was replaced with a safety clasp to assure that the jewel remains securely attached when worn. A curving chatelaine hook beneath the pinstem allows a small pendant or watch to be suspended from the bottom of the brooch.
