Deriving its name from a reputable Parisian gallery which opened in 1896, owned by a Mr. Samuel Bing, the Art Nouveau movement developed ideas originating from 'Maison de l'Art Nouveau' and sought to revive aestheticism in art, while influencing Western architecture, metalwork and interior design for roughly thirty years. It was introduced in England circa 1890 as a product of the movement initiated by William Morris and the Pre-Raphaelites, bearing the name of Arts and Crafts movement. The Art Nouveau style was fanciful, sensual and sensitive and featured feminine, free-flowing, curvilinear lines with asymmetrical natural motifs. Art Nouveau jewelry in most instances, was crafted in gold and incorporated pastel-colored stones that were used to reveal their own beauty and to accentuate rather than dominate. A notable event of this era was the discovery and revival of enamel effects such as cloisonné, champlevé and plique-à-jour, mostly attributable to the adoption of Japanese influx of art. Amongst the leading exponents of Art Nouveau were René Lalique and George Fouquet in France and Charles Ashbee and Henry Wilson in England.
