Art Nouveau

Jewellery of the Art Nouveau period was popular between 1890-1910. The Art Nouveau movement influenced the fine arts, architecture, and decorative arts as well as applied art. Characterised by such elements as curving lines, motifs of flora and fauna, and materials like enamel, Art Nouveau jewellery was also inspired by design artists as opposed to jewellers. For this reason, the artistic features of jewellery from this period are unique and remain utterly captivating today.
