A touch of history. Antique jewelry object group: engagement ring (or anniversary ring) Condition: excellent condition Country of origin: France Style: Art Nouveau - Art Nouveau (French for New Style) is an international movement and style of art, architecture and applied art - especially the decorative arts - that peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century (1890Ð1905). The name ""Art Nouveau"" is French for ""new art"". It is also known as Jugendstil, German for ""youth style"", named after the magazine Jugend, which promoted it, and in Italy, Stile Liberty from the department store in London, Liberty & Co., which popularised the style, and in Holland as ÒSla-olie-stijlÓ, Dutch for Òsalad oil styleÓ after a advertisement poster for this product that was made in that style. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it is characterized by organic, especially floral and other plant-inspired motifs, as well as highly stylized, flowing curvilinear forms. Art Nouveau is an approach to design according to which artists should work on everything from architecture to furniture, making art part of everyday life. Although Art Nouveau fell out of favour with the arrival of 20th-century modernist styles, it is seen today as an important bridge between the historicism of Neoclassicism and modernism. Style specifics: Art Nouveau - Although Art Nouveau took on distinctly localised tendencies as its geographic spread increase some general characteristics are indicative of the form. A description published in Pan magazine of Hermann Obrists wall-hanging Cyclamen (1894) described it as ""sudden violent curves generated by the crack of a whip"", which became well known during the early spread of Art Nouveau. Subsequently, not only did the work itself become better known as The Whiplash, but the term ""whiplash"" is frequently applied to the characteristic curves employed by Art Nouveau artists. Such decorative ""whiplash"" motifs, formed by dynamic, undulating, and flowing lines in a syncopated rhythm, are found throughout the architecture, painting, sculpture, and other forms of Art Nouveau design.(from: Wikipedia) Period: ca. 1900 Source of inspiration: flower symbolism Theme: Iris - click here for an explanation on the iris Material: 18K yellow gold Diamonds: one ovalish old cut diamond, natural brown color with an estimated weight of approximately 0.80 crt Note: All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
