Of all the pieces of art nouveau treasure I have seen in the course of this Challenge, these are the ones that I truly yearn to possess!
Gold, sapphire, and plique-a-jour enamel pendant. Marcus & Co.
Enamel brooch set with diamonds, circa 1905.
Plique-a-jour diamond, gold and platinum pendant.
Jugendstil brooch. Silver, moonstone, and glass. German maker’s mark, probably Pforzheim.
Of celestial design, the half moon-shaped black opal surmounted by a star motif accented with circular-cut diamond suspending an oval black opal surmounted by similarly set stars further suspending three lines of diamonds each terminating in an opal, completed by a trace link chain, brooch detachable, the opals together weighing approximately 14.50 carats, mounted in 15ct gold.
Yes, the jellyfish earrings. How could I possibly pass these up?
Gold, diamonds, sapphires, and pearls.

14k pearl and large cabochon moonstone ring. 1915, Brandt and Son.
A bee/wasp ring. Plique-a-jour enamel, diamond, and peridot.
Rose quartz cabochon set in sterling silver leaves. This ring is very unusual in that rose quartz is an uncommon stone in art nouveau jewelry.
From Lang Antiques:
“A placid pale-blue elongated oval aquamarine floats inside a fanciful and feminine openwork frame accented with twinkling diamond crescents and a pair of golden flowers. This extra-lovely and highly individualistic jewel measures 1 1/16 inches long by just over 5/8 inch wide.”
Egyptian Revival subset of art nouveau. 18k yellow gold, polychrome enamel, opal and rose-cut diamonds.
Georges Fouquet. Gold, enamel, opal, and pearl.
A gold and enamel “Fuschia” ring by Rene Lalique.
