This gorgeous brooch is an excellent example of jewelry of the Art Nouveau period (1890 - 1915), a movement that embraced long flowing lines and a lighter, more airy feeling than the heavy and somber Victorian styles. The importation of Asian art also influenced the trends, and nature was often the focus for the jewelry pieces.
Crafted of 14 karat rose gold, it features intertwined stylized snakes embracing a rich, throbbing purple amethyst heart stone. A dramatic and intriguing piece you'll love to show off with alluring style!
