PERIOD: ART NOUVEAU CIRCA 1900 / SOURCE: FRANCE / Yellow Gold and Diamond Flower Motif Pendant Earrings. Hand-chased yellow gold flowers and leaves with diamond accents form detachable pendants suspended from floral tops.
An 1898 Lalique pendant designed for actress Sarah Bernhardt. It depicts Miss Bernhardt as Mélissande in La Princesse Lointaine. I love this piece, and to think my Mom and aunts called me Sarah Bernhardt when I was a little girl.
