Spectacular Art Nouveau Jewelry

 

 

 

Art Nouveau was an international movement in the visual arts and architecture that was first noticed at the 1895 opening in Paris of Siegfried Bing’s commercial gallery, L’Art Nouveau but experienced its highest popularity in Europe and North America at the turn of the twentieth century. At the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris, Art Nouveau was established as the premiere decorative style of the new century. The impact of this style was seen in architecture, furniture, fashion, and jewelry. Art Nouveau existed for a brief moment but left a lasting impact on jewelry although its attractiveness lasted less than ten years. Pieces from this era are treasured for their original design rather than intrinsic value.
