This is a lovely Art Nouveau brooch that features a dramatic natural pearl in a 14K gold setting. The circular, organically shaped pearl has a gold setting in which it is framed with a delicate bead border with curling leaves that turn inward. The gold leaves are accented with diamond and ruby gemstones at alternating intervals. The naturalism and warm colors of this piece make it an especially beautiful example of Art Nouveau jewelry. The brooch measures approx. 1 ¼” in diameter. This piece is a fine example of American jewelry design from 1890-1900. This unusual yet pretty piece could be worn in a variety of ways to make a truly individualistic statement.
