Nouveau Réalisme Necklace: Malachite & Gold Vermeil by Independent Jeweller Estelle Deve

Brancusi’s infamous 1929 portrait of James Joyce dwells on the evocation of fragmented emotion. This artwork presents a spiral at its centre, separated by three abstract lines; a juxtaposition that inspired the Nouveau Réalisme necklace. The prominence of the malachite gemstone’s natural markings adds a unique flair, which helps to highlight the synchronicity of the infinite and the intangible; a sentiment that Brancusi explored in his work.

Nouveau Réalisme is thoughtfully crafted in 18k gold vermeil, inset with malachite. The pendant, measuring 28mm across and 8mm thick, inset with a malachite stone measuring 22mm across, is elegantly balanced upon a 50cm long and 1mm thick box chain. 

Key Features:

  • Inspiration. The design is influenced by the spiral and abstract lines in Brancusi's work, symbolising the blend of the infinite and intangible.
  • Material. Crafted in 18k gold vermeil, this necklace offers a luxurious and durable finish.
  • Gemstone. At the heart of the pendant lies a captivating malachite stone, measuring 22mm across, known for its striking natural markings and vibrant green hues.
  • Dimensions. The pendant measures 28mm across and 8mm in thickness, presenting a significant yet elegant profile.
  • Chain. Suspended on a 50cm long and 1mm thick box chain, the necklace achieves perfect balance and wearability.
  • Natural Beauty. Each malachite stone is unique, with variations in colour and pattern that add to the necklace's exclusivity and charm.

Please note, all stones are natural gemstones and will present variations in colour and pattern.
