1890-1910

Art Nouveau

Led by René Lalique, jewellers of the French Art Nouveau group had similar ideals, seeking inspiration from nature rather than history, particularly the curved lines of plans and flowers.  There was an emphasis on artistic settings rather than intrinsic value and new materials such as horn and the technique of “window” or translucent enamelling was introduced.  Generally, the lines of Art Nouveau are finer than the Arts & Crafts movement and more quality materials were often used.
