The Piece London
Art Nouveau Cantinelle Amethyst Charm
If you want to add something truly unique to your charm repertoire, check out this art nouveau high carat charm.
The Art Nouveau period ran from 1890-1910, and we date this piece to the earlier (late Victorian) half of this artistic step-change.
Formerly a stick pin, this piece makes use of delicate cantinelle work, which lends itself beautifully to the flowing and naturalistic inspiration that the period brought to jewellery. The high-carat gold is a deep yellow, which is the perfect sertting for the vibrant purple amethyst to the centre of the charm.
This charm is in excellent condition. Cantinelle is very delicate, and so we would not advise wearing this charm on a bracelet where it would be liable to denting.
Material: 18ct gold, amethyst. Jump ring is 9ct.
Measurements: 15mm wide, 12mm tall (not inc bale), bale width 4mm (interior)
