Buy Belle Epoque Tulip Collection from Sarah Raven: Soft, smoky, vintage colours are increasingly my favourites. With this mix of three exceptional and unusual tulips, they reign supreme. Includes Tulips 'La Belle Epoque', 'Bruine Wimpel' and 'Recreado'.
A SUPERB BELLE EPOQUE OPAL PENDANT NECKLACE Centering upon a heart-shaped opal pendant, enhanced by sculpted scrolling gold iris motifs, suspended by twin diamond collet lines from a similarly-set fan-shaped surmount, to the backchain joined to a smaller heart-shaped opal plaque within a sculpted gold iris motif frame, c1900.

Cléo De Mérode, french dancer of the Belle Epoque. Cleo's brand of beauty seems to transcend time, she looks as if she would have fitted quite happily into any decade of the Twentieth Century, even the silk taupe blouse she is wearing for the Boldini painting has a touch of modernity about it. She has amazing eyes, what does she know that we don't? Perhaps she knew she was a lady ahead of her time...
A Belle Epoque diamond brooch/pendant, circa 1910. The articulated triangular openwork plaque, centrally-set with a collet-set old brilliant-cut diamond, within star-shaped latticework accented by single-cut diamonds, to a scrolled border millegrain-set throughout with cushion-shaped and old brilliant-cut diamonds, detachable brooch frame. #BelleÉpoque #brooch #pendant
