Art Nouveau Era
Time Period: The Art Nouveau period dates from 1890 to 1910.
Description of Era: Art Nouveau influences from the early 1900s include geometric designs combined with ribbon, swirl and flower shapes. Motifs were also heavily influenced by increased travel, a growing interest in discovering other cultures, and the opening of King Tutankhamen's tomb in 1922. Many designs contain Egyptian, African, Oriental and American Indian symbols, designs and patterns.
A bright and bold look was accomplished using eye-catching metal work combined with large diamonds and gemstones to create a style of geometric patterns and shapes. During the Art Nouveau years, yellow gold was not used often. Platinum, 18k and 14k white gold and sterling silver were most common.
When you choose to go vintage with VERMA, you are cutting out the use for further mining and environmental damages which are a byproduct. In addition, the diamonds used in our collection are all conflict-free; as the conflict mines were in production after our pieces are dated.
