A French Art Nouveau 18 karat gold and plique-à-jour enamel ring with diamonds and pearl by Georges Le Turcq. The ring has 31 rose cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .31 carat, and a freshwater baroque pearl. The ring exhibits the classic Art Nouveau motifs of organic entwined tendrils and plique-à-jour enamel leaves with the organic form of the baroque pearl.Georges Le Turcq trained at the Ecoles des Arts Décoratifes in Paris before he joined Julien Duval in 1885 and the pair became respected for their medallist work. Although successful, the partnership ended in 1894 and Le Turoq began to experiment further and develop the stylistic characteristics of the Art Nouveau period for which he is primarily known.
