February 2019 Gemologist Jewelry Pick of the Month - Art Nouveau Antique Pin - J37294
Our Graduate Gemologist, Graydon Gesner, selected this absolutely gorgeous Art Nouveau Pin of Cleopatra as his jewelry pick of the month. He says, " I love the fine workmanship of the enameling on her face which is so delicately and crisply finished." Pictured here is the Art Nouveau Pin of Cleopatra's enameled face with her headpiece which features apx. .10ct. T.W. of single cut diamonds with VS-SI clarity and F color, as well as .07ct. T.W. of green demantoid garnets. There is an asp around her neck with a single cut diamond on its head. This 14k pin was made by the famous company Shreve & Co. in San Francisco. With the subtle attention to detail, this pin is a perfect example of the Art Nouveau era.
