Thank you!
The representation of flower has a special place in Art Noveau jewelry. Gardens, woodlands scenes and detail of a single flower become a dazzling miracle of color and form. The precision of the basse-taille enamels endows the textures with a fragile, sensual delicacy. The result is a masterpiece with echoes of a midsummer night's dream.
Art nouveau was an international philosophy and style design that arose in the turn of the twentieth century. The literal meaning is "new art".

Between 1890 and 1910 it was one of the most popular forms of architecture and applied art in Europe. Many would incorporate this style into their homes, furniture, fashion, art and jewelry.

The organic forms and structures of art nouveau mirrored those found in elements like flowers, plants and curved lines. This style makes many of its references to the nature world. Some would even describe it to be fanciful and out of the ordinary.

Art nouveau was eventually replaced by the 20th century modernist style. Ever since then, there hasn't been any other style that's come close to art nouveau, especially when it comes to jewelry

  • LEOPOLD VAN STRYDONCK
  • The Doi Collection, donated to Sakai city, is renowned for its selection of works from the great proponent of art nouveau Alphonse Mucha. Collected by the entrepreneur Kimio Doi this array of work includes posters, oil paintings, sketches and various other forms revealing Mucha in all his flourishes along with prints and posters from his close contemporaries.

  • Bernhardt’s turn to melodrama took her from the classical theaters of France to the more popular realm of the Grands Boulevards, and it was the publicity for these more popular houses that in turn brought her to Alphonse Mucha. From 1895 to 1900, Mucha was under contract to the actress to design stage sets and costumes for her productions, including Rostand’s play, La Princesse Lointaine (The Faraway Princess), for which he designed this diadem of jeweled lilies that Bernhardt wore as Mélissinde. We also see this diadem in Mucha’s poster for a banquet honoring Bernhardt in which the actress—frontal, hieratic, and crowned—looks every inch the Art Nouveau icon of a new Byzantium.
  • Oltre alla passione per i gioielli, Fulco di Verdura, discendente di una nobile famiglia siciliana decaduta, condivideva con Coco Chanel una certa inclinazione a reiventare la  propria vita. 
    Infatti raccontava di aver lasciato il palazzo di famiglia in Sicilia, per cominciare a guadagnarsi da  vivere come designer di gioielli, dopo aver dilapidato l’eredità paterna in bella vita e feste in costume; gli storici invece sostengono che fu costretto a lavorare perché il padre lo aveva lasciato povero e carico di debiti.Comunque sia andata, grazie alle ottime frequentazioni coltivate nella Palermo cosmopolita del primo ’900 tra i Florio e i Whitaker, Fulco poteva contare su una clientela di amiche molto sensibili ai gioielli.  
    Gli inizi nell’atelier di Paul Flato a New York e la collaborazione con Mademoiselle gli diedero la fama, il suo talento fece il resto. I bracciali in smalto con le croci di Malta, disegnati per Coco, finirono al braccio di Diana Vreeland, famosa editor in chief di Vogue America, e da lì in testa ai desideri di tutte le socialite dell’epoca. 
    Wallis Simpson, Babe Pailey, Mona Bismark, l’ambasciatrice americana in Italia Clare  Boothe Luce, l’ereditiera Barbara Hutton, tutte negli anni ’50 indossavano il turbante V , composto da una conchiglia naturale incrostata di pietre e istoriata d’oro. Il designer si divertiva a trasformare oggetti di poco prezzo in gioielli da migliaia di dollari, rifuggendo i materiali più tradizionali quali i grossi smeraldi che liquidava come ‘mineralogia’. 
    Famosi i suoi moretti, le corde marine, i cuori ingabbiati, gli animali fantastici e i portasigarette in oro che Cole Porter continuava a perdere.
  • Fulco di Verdura (20 March 1898 – 15 August 1978), or Fulco Santo Stefano della Cerda, Duke of Verdura, and Marquis of Murata la Cerda, was an influential Italian jeweller. His career began with an introduction to designer Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel by composer Cole Porter.[1]
    He was the last to bear the now-defunct Sicilian title of Duke of Verdura and his cousin were the prominent Sicilian Prince, the writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, author of the famous novel The Leopard. A biography of di Verdura was published by Thames and Hudson, authored by Patricia Corbett.
