Art Nouveau Gold and Platinum Pendant and Brooch*
Striking Art Nouveau pendant and/or brooch crafted in 18 ct. yellow gold, rose gold and platinum.
In the form of the face of a young maiden, her long hair falling down on both sides of her face with the final curl at the bottom providing the support for a very fine wing pearl drop.
Partially hidden behind her is a open marigold type flower, the centre set with a yellow diamond partially surrounded by little clear diamonds.
Both the flower and the girl’s face are in yellow gold with just her hair in contrasting rose gold.
This image is framed in openwork and typical Art Nouveau style with an outline fashioned from platinum, the whole effect being extremely stylish.
A removeable brooch pin is attached to the back and the 9 ct. gold necklace chain is connected via little hooks which fit neatly and easily at the top when worn as a pendant.
No marks at all but almost certainly French and dating from circa 1900.
6.5 cm in length, including the pearl drop, with the necklace chain measuring 57 cm.
