This time was centered on women, and the beauty of nature and the pieces were often voluminous. The enamel was a standard material used in art nouveau jewellery, as the period was more focused on the importance of design than on the materials used to create it. The art nouveau period took place before the beginning of the First World War, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewellery. The neo-strusc jewels were popularized for the first time in the early 1800s when an Etruscan tomb was discovered just outside Roma.
From the moment it was discovered, the jewellers worked to imitate and understand the working techniques of the metals with which the jewels were made. Etruscan jewellery was not only a luxurious addition to Victorian styles of the time.But he introduced new ideas and decorations. These Etruscan tombs contained jewels decorated with long and fluid geometric lines and patterns, mythological images and landscapes, and celestial elements. The techniques of repulse, watermark and granulation are all attributed to the Etruscans. The repulse began as an old metalworking technique dating back to the 3rd century BC, involving a malleable metal that was hammered on the back to create an image on the front. Examples are found all over the world; the greek, the gypsy, and even the hopwell periods in the southeastern American. Inverse-side hammering has also been used to add details to the front, creating complex patterns with grooves, indentations and pipes. The piece was then carefully polished to create a hollow and catchy treasure.
