Nouveau 1910 Nymph Pendant / Brooch with "Plique 'a Jour" Enamel, Pink Sapphires and Diamond accents in 18-karat gold.
This necklace measures 2 1/2  inches long.

Plique 'a Jour enamel essentially made of a special glass in which some metallic oxides are then added at very high temperatures, these oxides form the color. The material is then ground in a agate bowl. To obtain a good "plique 'a jour the craftsman at Nouveau 1910 fill the small windows with the enamel paste and bake it several times (up to 20 or more) in a special oven that reaches 1,000 degrees Celsius, giving the desired tones between reheating. It is this sequence that gives the enamel its beautiful color, toughness and transparency.
