Antique Jugendstil Tree of Life Pendant Silver Garnet

Jugendstil emerged in Germany around 1890. It was the Art Nouveau movement, a time of geometric and natural flowing design, but in another language. This pendant is a creative piece, showcasing complexity in a simple form. It’s exquisite, with a pair of hands holding a tree of life at the base of its trunk, as if these hands are holding up the world. Jugendstil was an abstract and organic movement that took over everything, architecture, painting, furniture, utensils, textiles, etc. It destroyed a hierarchy of arts in which the classical arts had previously ruled. This decorative antique silver pendant is one of the masterpieces that emerged from this era.

This antique German Jugendstil silver pendant was handcrafted around 1900. It weighs 7.2 grams and measures 42 x 26 mm. The chain measures 18.5" in length. The pendant features an abstract tree with hands around its trunk and a garnet at the base. The dark red round garnet measures 5.5 mm in diameter and 2.6 mm in depth. This piece has been fully hallmarked as it bears the silver fineness mark, “800” on the pendant, “STERLING” on the chain, and “925” on the bale. 

This era produced unforgettable pieces, and this pendant is one of them. It has a touch of flair, and the perfect amount of originality.
