Vintage Plique A Jour Cherub Putto Pendant with Diamonds & Ruby 18k Yellow Gold

The meticulous craftsmanship and historical significance of the Plique-à-jour Cherub Putto pendant make it a masterpiece of the Victorian revival era. Reflecting the delicate and organic forms characteristic of Art Nouveau, this pendant embodies the romance and opulence of the period. The translucent enamel, reminiscent of the finesse found in stained glass art, illuminates with a play of light, showcasing the cherub in a magical milieu. Surrounded by a halo of diamonds, the scene comes alive with a vibrancy that is both ethereal and grounded by the warmth of the 18k yellow gold. The duck and lily pad details, highlighted with diamond pave, add a touch of whimsy, creating a narrative that is as enchanting as the craftsmanship is exquisite. A half-carat natural Ruby, dangles with dignity, its deep red hue echoing the passion and artistry of an era that continues to inspire and captivate.
Plique-à-jour is a highly specialized and intricate enameling technique in the world of jewelry making, resembling the delicate appearance of stained-glass windows. This method involves applying enamel in cells, similar to cloisonné, but without a backing, allowing light to shine through the translucent enamel and creating a stunning visual effect. The term “plique-à-jour” is French for “letting in daylight”, aptly describing how this technique highlights the beauty and color of the enamel when exposed to light. This technique demands high skill and patience, resulting in pieces that are not only jewelry but also miniature works of art, celebrated for their ethereal quality and intricate detail.
