Art Nouveau Non-Pierce Earrings (1890-1915)

Inspired by Japonisme - the simple, elegant interpretation of nature - Art Nouveau was a creative movement that celebrated decorative arts and defied the ‘fussy’ style of the Victorian era.

Identifiable by its bright colours, natural motifs and curved lines, Art Nouveau jewellery contains materials that lend themselves to this fluidity - opal, moonstone, ivory, enamel, glass.

The beautiful, accomplished actresses and opera singers of the time inspired the ‘cult of the female figure’ - another rejection of Victorian thinking - and the nude female form is a popular motif of the Art Nouveau era.
