What to expect from an Art Nouveau Ring

What constitutes an Art Nouveau ring?

Well let’s start with what constitutes Art Nouveau first, shall we?

According to Brilliant Earth Jewelers:

As the 20th century was approaching, an imaginative and original style of jewelry-making burst forth from the vibrant European arts scene. The Art Nouveau (literally “New Art”) era, lasting from 1890 to 1910 and was actually a broad artistic movement, with one of its key tenets that art should be a part of daily life.

The mood of Art Nouveau jewelry is soft, mystical, and romantic. Pale colors and flowing, undulating curves helped to establish a soothing aura. Art Nouveau jewelers, greatly influenced by depictions of nature in Japanese art, looked to the natural world for inspiration.

Art Nouveau jewelry also took chances, breaking from traditional diamonds and incorporating less popular but distinctive gemstones like moonstone, amethyst, opal, amber, citrine, peridot and freshwater pearls.
