Greatly influencing Western architecture, metalwork and interior design for roughly thirty years, the Art Nouveau period (1890-1919) was fanciful, sensual and sensitive in its use of feminine flowing curvilinear lines and exquisite depiction of the female form. Art Nouveau jewelry in most instances was crafted in gold and incorporated pastel-colored stones that were used to accentuate rather than dominate the jewelry. Opals, aquamarines, peridot, amethyst and demantoid green garnets were popular choices. A notable event of this Antique Jewelry era was the discovery and revival of enamel effects such as cloisonn?, champlev? and plique-?-jour, mostly attributable to the adoption of Japanese influx of art.
