Design Area

Area Information

Art Nouveau (Modern Style) or Jugendstil jewelry (1895-1915) features natural designs such as flowers and butterflies and were generally considered "romantic". This style was popular from about 1895 until World War I. The style actually began around 1875 in Paris, and its influence went throughout the western world. The style died out by the end of World War I but has often been revived.
Art Nouveau jewelry follows curves and naturalistic designs, especially depicting long-haired, sensual women, sometimes turning into bird-like or flower-like forms.

Materials

Material Information

Pearl

All pearls originate in mollusks (mollusca), whether natural or cultured. Mollusks are a phylum of invertebrate animals that includes oysters, clams, mussels, snails and octopus among their approximately one hundred and twenty-eight thousand species, all with the ability to produce pearls. Only a few of these varieties can create gem quality pearls.

Paste

Paste is a synonym for glass when used in the context of a gem material. Glass has been used as a gemstone imitation since ancient history for obvious reasons: it's transparent, can be colored in many ways and resembles all kinds of gemstones when polished.

The first paste 'forgeries' are thought to have been introduced into the Ancient Greek society although glass making had been around for a long time by then.

14ct

Because of the softness of pure (24k), it is usually alloyed with base metals for use in jewelry, altering its hardness and ductility, melting point, color and other properties. Alloys with lower carat rating, typically 22k, 18k, 14k or 9k, contain higher percentages of copper or other base metals or silver or palladium in the alloy. Copper is the most commonly used base metal, yielding a redder color.
