Upcoming Most Wanted II Auction Highlights Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Victorian JewelryJan 12, 2021 14:00 EST
Art Nouveau, meaning “new art,” was a short-lived period that had a lasting impact on jewelry design and other art forms. Marked by flowing lines and curves, Art Nouveau found inspiration in women and nature. Flowers, fruit, and insects frequently appeared in Art Nouveau jewelry designs. Several Art Nouveau jewelry pieces will be featured in the upcoming Most Wanted II auction, presented by Intervendue. An 18-karat plique-à-jour enamel pendant is among the key lots. The pendant shows a woman wearing a long dress in a sitting posture, holding a diamond.
A Quatre ring from Boucheron is another leading lot of the event. First presented in 2004, the Quatre ring brings together four gold bands in one ring – yellow, pink, white, and chocolate. Each layer hosts Boucheron’s signature grosgrain, gadroons, and smoothness. Also featured in this sale is an Art Deco diamond engagement ring. The available ring features a central 7.5-carat European diamond. To view the full auction catalog and register to bid, visit Bidsquare.
