Art Nouveau jewelry is heavily defined by an artistic movement that emphasized designs inspired by nature as a creative protest against the Industrial Revolution.
Defined by their flowing symmetry, circular swirls and loops, and very feminine designs, Art Nouveau jewelry is one to remember. A return to nature was the main theme of this movement, and the lines and shapes of the rings were designed to reflect the symmetry of nature.
This stunning example features a glorious lavender amethyst that takes center stage with a hand-faceted bezel edging and romanesque shoulders. Amethyst is known to represent faithful love and chastity, along with sincerity, calmness, patience, and peace.
