Antoine Bricteux Enamel and Diamond Trumpet Vine Pendant Necklace


Created around 1900 in France, this gold, enamel, and diamond flower pendant necklace is by Parisian Art Nouveau jeweler, Antoine Bricteux. Designed as a polychrome flowering trumpet vine in en plein rose, green and cream enamel, the pendant is a flowing cascade of petals, leaves and sinuous vines, highlighted by old European-cut diamond accents, and suspended from an unusual fancy link chain. A combination of botanical beauty, period stylization and glowing enamel, whose naturalistic palette enhances the skin, this flower jewel is a work of wearable art.
