In time, all good things come back into fashion, as is the case with Art Nouveau jewelry. In the May issue of In Style, jewelry writers Marion Fasel and Penny Proddow say Art Nouveau styles are making an elegant comeback. Kathleen Fitzpatrick from Departures agrees, saying "the art of Nouveau seems suddenly swell and quite elegant all over again." Fitzpatrick's six-page feature on Nouveau jewelry appears in the May/June issue.
In Style features a gold, diamond and enamel ring with a black South Sea pearl by Evelyn Clothier, gold and enamel earrings with diamonds and rubies by Otto Jakob, enamel earrings with pave diamonds by Masriera, gold and enamel earrings with amethysts, emeralds and pearls by Percossi Papi and a gold chain with a reversable gemstone/enamel pendant by Sunhera.
