This era focused on the beauty of women and nature, and the resulting pieces are often large and elegant. Because the period emphasized the importance of design over the materials used to create it, enamel was a commonly used material in Art Nouveau jewelry. The Art Nouveau period occurred before the start of World War I, when mass production took over the production of many products, including some jewelry.Mughal jewelry emerged 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 adorned jewelry pieces.
As the Mughal empire conquered the majority of India, the Mughal style spread to many other regions, being incorporated into various Indian cultures. The pieces typically feature intricate patterns, massive amounts of gemstones, and elaborate enameling. Mediterranean red coral grows on rocky, low sedimentation seafloors, typically in dark environments, either in depths or in dark caves or crevices.
