Art Nouveau Lady & Lucky Horseshoe Pendant
with Diamond & Seed Pearls in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A lovely Art Nouveau era pendant, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose primary element is a maiden with a gentle, smiling expression. This carefully-sculpted lady has long flowing hair that twists under her chin, curving upwards to become a crown of flowers and plumes. She is also crowned with a single, sparkling, old mine cut diamond. A slender horseshoe, set with silvery seed pearls, frames our nymph-like subject. The placement of the diamond, paired with the lucky horseshoe, lends this lady a sweet, mystical quality— she was no doubt intended as a good luck charm! This is pendant is beautifully made, and the pearls are all bead-set. It hangs from an oval jump ring.
Measures approx 30.7 mm (about 1.25") x 20 mm.
