Superb Art Nouveau Scarf Ring, by Plisson & Hartz, in gold & diamond.
Hinged with a central pin for gripping a scarf.
Plisson et Hartz were an important jewellery firm specialising in Art Nouveau pieces made of gold and exquisitely chased, as in the scarf ring above. The combination with diamonds as highlights is typical of their work. Their designs have a sculptural feel. The female face was indicative of the Art Nouveau period and represented the woman in her changing role in society and the awareness of the feminine sensitivity and passion.
