-LUXURY- Sterling Silver, Pearl Amethyst & Enamel Art Nouveau Style Brooch

£45
This is a stunning modern brooch in the Art Nouveau style featuring pearls, amethyst stones and Plique-à-jourenamel work.

Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It is in effect a miniature version of stained-glass and is considered very challenging technically: high time consumption (up to 4 months per item), with a high failure rate.

The brooch measures approx 1 1/2 inches in height from the top of the brooch to the bottom of the pearl drop. It has similar colours to that of antique Suffragette jewelry (purple, green and pearl)

Working safety clasp. Will arrive gift boxed.
