Art Nouveau Sapphire Brooch

Sapphires and Pearl

An Art Nouveau brooch with dark sapphires and a small pearl set amid flowing curves and draping acanthus leaves.  This intriguing jewel brings to mind an exotic moth spreading its wings in the night or, perhaps, a rare nocturnal flower blooming in the moonlight.  A beautiful example of the Art Nouveau taste for otherworldly, dream-inspired fantasy.  Created in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

The reverse of the brooch is beautifully crafted with a sturdy framework supporting the flowing curves of the design.  At some point in the past the clasp of the brooch was replaced with a safety clasp to assure the jewel would remain securely attached when worn.  A curving chatelaine hook beneath the pin stem allows a small pendant or watch to be suspended from the bottom of the brooch.
