Masriera Plique-a-Jour Enamel Pearl Diamond Butterfly Pendant


Devotees of Masriera’s iconic art nouveau designs will instantly recognize this piece as one that was created by the celebrated brand from Barcelona. These distinctively feminine works of art have been manufactured by Masriera since 1839 and continue to be made today in the traditions established nearly two centuries ago. This piece depicts a butterfly with an intricate pattern in her wings, a kaleidoscope of colors achieved with astounding success, considering the degree of difficulty in creating “plique a jour” enamel. This specialized technique allows light to shine through the enamel, creating an etherial look that is alluring and beautiful. Brilliant round diamonds, .36 carats in total, are peppered across her wings in artful strokes and her body is represented by a lustrous pearl. The pin/pendant measures 2.5 by 1.5 inches. The pendant is fitted with a pin back and concealed hooks, allowing it to be worn multiple ways. We are showing it suspended from a fitted chain that is decorated with a diamond-studded crescent moon and green enamel leaves. The chain measures 22 inches in overall length, but wears slightly shorter, as it gathers gently in the center. 18k yellow gold.
