A polished yellow gold, hinged bangle set with six light blue cabochon sapphires (0.72ct). This is a particularly interesting example from the Art Nouveau period and features French hallmarks. Six gold French franc coins have been securely claw mounted, and feature the beautiful portrait profile of Marianne (the national personification of the French Republic). This profile was created by Jules-Clément Chaplain, who was a renowned medallist and part founder of the Art Nouveau movement. Works of art in their own right, as well as a valuable form of currency and symbol of wealth, the beauty of coins has always featured in jewellery. Classic Art Nouveau style is visible in these profile portraits, with the serene, naturalistic wheat crown and fluid long hair of the iconic Marianne. The addition of light blue cabochon sapphires transforms this piece into a beautiful jewel, with the blue colour of these gemstones paying further homage to the French nation.
