This was very true due to the gorgeous designs that came out of this period. This era focused on women, and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often large.
Enamel was a standard material used in Art Nouveau jewelry as the period was more about the importance of the design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period happened before the start of the first World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewelry.
Bohemian garnet is a transparent or translucent mineral of a dark red hue. Bohemian garnets were mined starting in the 16th century in the Bohemian Hills of Czechoslovakia. During the Victorian and Art Deco eras, this type of garnet reached a height of popularity. There are no known mines in existence today, which has made the remaining stones highly coveted.
