History of Art Nouveau Jewelry

The Art Nouveau era is a short, but important period from 1890-1915. This design movement was in response to the mass-produced jewelry of the Industrial Revolution.

Art Nouveau jewelry was completely innovative and original.

Art Nouveau design features flowing curves and highlights nature including flowers, animals, and insects.

The romance of jewelry was apparent during this movement breaking away from the heavy and darker designs of the Victorian period before.
