English Georgian Pearl, Porcelain Enamel and Gold Pendant Necklace

An English Georgian 18 karat gold and porcelain enamel Lover's Eye pendant necklace with half pearls. The pendant necklace has 47 half pearls approximately 3 mm. in size surrounding the pendant. This unique pendant is composed of symbolic elements of memorial jewelry. In this piece, the pearl frame signifies tears, white -- a traditional memorial color -- is used heavily, and a bucolic garden -- yet another symbol of memorials -- is featured prominently. The flaming heart and the lover's eye denote a passionate love that had ended. As Ginny Dawes notes, "In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there was a fashion in love jewelry, for Memento Mori or 'vanitas' pieces which meant, literally, 'remember you must die'," and to memorialize the love that has departed. With fitted box.

Luis Masriera Art Nouveau Diamond, Pearl, Enamel and Gold Pendant

A Spanish Art Nouveau 18 karat gold pendant/brooch with diamond and pearls by Masriera. The pendant brooch has an old European-cut diamond with an approximate total weight of .07 carats, and a freshwater pearl drop of approximately 6 x 5 mm. The pendant depicts a maiden emerging among flowers. (New chain added.) "The name Masriera is not only a synonym for artistic jewellery, but also much more: Catalan modernist jewelry, a world focussed on the symbolic trends of Art Nouveau. The name Masriera is completely inseparable from the artistic and cultural life in Barcelona in the last decades of the 19th century until the first decades of the 20th century." After being introduced to the work of René Lalique and the 1900 International Paris Exhibition, Masriera's jewels focused on the floral, serpentine elements and feminine sensuality, but the true iconographic revolution came from the magical fusion of the Art Nouveau, the iconic fusion between woman and nature, spawning the popular fairies, nymphs, naiads and insect-women.
