A truly exquisite French late Art Nouveau pendant/brooch worked in 18K gold and studded with 95 single-cut diamonds. The brooch features a gold lily pad worked in delicate shades of yellowish-green and with intricate engraving beneath the translucent enamel. The leaf is surrounded in a whiplash frame of small diamonds set in silver over gold (typical of French jewels of the 19th century). The frame is accented with a pair of natural button pearls and suspends a natural drop pearl at the bottom. A diamond-studded lily blossom is attached with a knife-edge stem of gold and silver. The entire frame is surmounted by a full-blown waterlily blossom, also set in diamonds. The back has a pair of bails so the piece can be worn as a pendant, but also a pinstem so it can be worn as a brooch. This is an exceptionally fine Art Nouveau jewel. Origin: France, ca. 1890. Condition: excellent, no enamel damage. Size: 1-7/16” x 2-3/16”. Weight: 11.4 grams. Approximate Total Diamond Weight: 1.9 carats.
