Sofia Kaman Curated Vintage Engagement Rings

Art Nouveau Jewelry

The Art Nouveau (1895-1915) movement was the international artistic reaction to the technological advances and academic art of the 19th century. Floral motifs, organic forms and textures were mixed with scrolling gold details in Art Nouveau jewelry. Enameling was perfected and created colorful swirls that decorated and danced across rings, earrings and necklaces. The natural female form was embraced as well, creating a scandalous artistic movement that shocked the aristocrats.
