More information : In the realm of antique jewelry, the Art Nouveau period is known for its inspiration drawn from nature, particularly fauna and flora, as well as the female form. Japanese art significantly influenced jewelers during this period. As a result, you’ll often find recurring themes, such as the profile of a woman, butterflies, foraging bees, dragonflies, mythical creatures, seahorses, fish, and more. Vines and grapes are also common elements in Art Nouveau designs due to their gracefully curving forms, making them well-suited for the period’s artistic style.
