Vever Art Nouveau Diamond, Plique à Jour, Platinum and Gold Pendant/Brooch

A French Art Nouveau 18 karat gold and platinum pendant/brooch with diamonds by Vever. The pendant/brooch has 25 miligrain-set old mine cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 3.60 carats, gold knife wire and plique à jour mistletoe leaves. Signed Vever fitted box with pendant fitting, chain and screwdriver. Henri Vever was a third-generation jeweler who, along with his brother Paul became partners in the family business in 1874. According to their educations and talents, Paul became responsible for the commercial side of the business while Henri managed the creative side. Their collaboration was so successful that they won the Grand Prix at the Exposition Universelle of 1889, the first of three such prizes to be granted to them. The Vever brothers had many sources of inspiration, from naturalistic themes of flora and fauna to classical motifs. In addition, they championed new techniques, especially in the field of enamelling. At the turn of the century, the house of Vever was known for some of the most beautiful of jewels created in the Art Nouveau style, exemplified by the outstanding pendant/brooch. In contrast to their more avant-garde contemporaries, Vever's jewels were a bit more restrained in design and they continued to favor the use of precious stones set within finely wrought mountings. In addition to being one of France's most renowned jewelers, Henri Vever (1854-1942) is remembered as a historian, a critic and a writer. His landmark study La Bijouterie Française au XIXe Siècle remains unequalled as a reference book on French jewelry.
