This era focused on the beauty of women and nature, and the resulting pieces were often large and elegant. Enamel was a commonly used material in Art Nouveau jewelry, as the period emphasized the importance of design over the materials used to create it. The Art Nouveau period occurred before the onset of World War I, when mass manufacturing took over the production of many products, including some jewelry. Mughal jewelry appeared in India under the Mughal dynasty, starting in the 16th century.
Jewelry was an important symbol indicating a person's status in society. The elite wore highly ornate and heavily jeweled pieces. As the Mughal empire conquered most of India, the Mughal style spread to many other regions, being incorporated into many Indian cultures.Pieces usually feature complex patterns, massive amounts of gemstones, and elaborate enameling. Enameling originally dates back to ancient Persians from Meenakari. The technique involves sticking glass powder onto a base, usually gold, through cooking (heating and melting the glass onto the metal).
The glass hardens to form a layer of pigment on the metal. Enamel is made of colored glass powder or can include transparent glass powder mixed with colored metallic pigments. It was used by ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Celts; and later the Chinese and Georgians. It regained popularity in the 20th century.It is mainly used on decorative art or jewelry, usually in small sizes. Besides jewelry, enamel can also be applied to glass, ceramics, stone, and various other materials. French jeweler Georges Frédéric Strass created "paste" as an alternative to diamonds during the Georgian era. Lead glass was cut and polished with a metallic powder until it sparkled like a diamond in the light. These white stones "diamante" or "strass" were very popular with glamorous Parisians, and eventually paste stones were colored to imitate other gemstones.
