French Art Nouveau Gold Enamel, Diamond, Peridot and Plique-à-Jour ''Juliet'' Pendant

A French Art Nouveau 18 karat gold pendant with diamonds, pearls and peridots. The pendant features a plique-à-jour background with rose-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .60 carat, 3 freshwater pearls and 3 pear and round-cut peridots with enamel decoration surrounding the profile of Juliet. Shown in the Poster House (New York) exhibition "Alphonse Mucha: Art Nouveau./Nouvelle Femme," June 20-October 6, 2019. Note: This exquisite Art Nouveau image depicts Juliet at the moment when Romeo, lingering in the Montague''s garden, catches sight of her on her balcony. She is illuminated by the dawn light, represented in the jewel by the sparkling diamonds framing her head and the panes of glowing plique-a-jour enamel behind her. Though he first sees Juliet dancing with another man, Romeo is not put off, predicting that their love will prove "a beauteous flower" and identifying her with light: "she teaches the torches to burn bright". Meanwhile, behind a veneer of obedience, Juliette, resolute, witty, and loyal, chooses independence in death over life with the man her father has commanded her to marry. In part thanks to his captivating and complex woman heroes like Juliet, Shakespeare "went global" in the 19th century, inspiring world artists not only in drama but painting, printmaking, fiction, music and jewelry.

French Art Nouveau Mother-of-Pearl, Diamond and Gold Pendant Locket, Attributed to Edouard Colonna

A French Art Nouveau 18 karat gold pendant locket with mother-of-pearl and diamond. The oval pendant locket designed with baroque mother-of-pearl plaques among swirling seaweed with subtle chased detail, two old mine-cut diamond highlights, approximate total weight 0.16 carats, swiveling open to a locket compartment, suspended from a conforming 14 karat gold chain of oval and circular trace links highlighted by seed pearls (28 inch chain of later manufacture). Note: This work strongly resembles that of Edouard Colonna, a restless, influential, still mysterious Art Nouveau designer, master of a variety of artistic media. His rich and interesting early career was spent in the United States, where he quickly found a position with Louis Comfort Tiffany''s "Associated Artists" interior design firm. While in the U.S. and Canada, Colonna created design books, later viewed as anticipating the decorative language of the Art Nouveau movement. The design volumes drew influences from sources as diverse as broom-corn and other botanical subjects to funerary sculpture from Ravenna. The acme of his career, from 1898-1902, was spent in Paris at L''Art Nouveau Gallery of Siegfried Bing, for whom Colonna designed a salon at the 1900 World Exposition. In a burst of creative energy, Colonna also produced elegant, quietly sensuous jewels integrating highly stylized botanical motifs, which won critical acclaim. Many of the jewels were executed at Bing''s Paris workshop.
