Art Nouveau may have been a relatively short period, only lasting between 1890–1910, but it made a lasting impression on artists all over the world. Jewelers, in particular, were no longer regarding themselves as mere craftsmen, but instead allowed their inner artist emerge in their work. Rather than simply trying to please their buyers by providing bland settings for spectacular jewels, they used their craft as a forum for their own inspirations—and because of this newfound devotion to the pieces they were producing, quality skyrocketed.
Instead of showcasing elaborate ornamentations and large precious gemstones like the periods before them, jewelers of the time moved toward more modern designs, experimented with new materials, and let the settings speak for themselves. Main inspirations of the time came from the natural world around them, such as the soft, flowing lines found in vines, branches, and grass, and organic forms, such as animals, insects, and most popularly, flowers—just like the waterlily design showcased in our vintage inspired 18k white gold earrings.
With their delicate foliate design that cascades downward, our stunning Waterlily Earrings are straight out of the Art Nouveau era, and they’re sure to become your new favorite statement piece. Buy our vintage inspired 18k white gold earrings today, exclusively at Trumpet & Horn!
