All Art Nouveau wanted to do was rebel against the manmade coldness of the Industrial Revolution and come out the other side with something softer, lighter, and a little more in touch with nature. The hallmarks of Art Nouveau are all organics: flowers, plants, the curves of a woman's body. The Carved Moonstone Cameo Ring is a prime example of this sinuous and elegant art movement from the turn of the last century.
This charming 14-karat gold ring of a mystery woman in profile is elegantly framed in tulips. Tulips are symbolic of charity (thank you Victorians) and love (thank you Persians), the kind found in friendship, in romance, and in family. This little lady could have been a beloved friend, sister or wife. The ring is a size 6 US and measures 15 mm north to south and 10 mm east to west.
From the elegant woman at the center to the tulips at the edges, this incontestably Art Nouveau ring boasts soft feminist vibes and organic shapes.
