A truly magnificent Art Nouveau enamelled brooch. Most probably created in France at the end of the nineteenth century this brooch is made in rose colourose gold and has two old mine cut brilliant diamonds of 0.15 carat, a rose cut diamond in the flower and a very nice hanging pearl.

In a process known as plique a jour the translucent enamel is actually fired in between thin wires of gold, a process that has been masterfully used to dramatic effect on the delicately veined wings of this brooch. The subtle enamelling on the flower and the discreet colour transition behind the face make this sought-after jewel a true collectors item.

Although plique a jour enamel is delicate by its very nature this piece is eminently wearable. Thanks to the later addition of a loop on the back it can be worn, either as a brooch or a pendant and in the right setting it would make a truly noble conversation piece.

Thanks to a discreetly placed ring system in the back, this jewel can also be worn either as a brooch or as a pendant.

A very similar jewel is depicted on picture # 30 in the book "Art Nouveau Jewelry" by Vivienne Becker (1985, Thames and Hudson, ISBN 0-525-24345-3)
