    These are two enchanting Jugendstil plique and silver pendants made by the firm Levinger and Bissinger, Pforzheim, Germany, ca 1900. The first features opals, green and yellow Plique-à-jour, and gilded silver, whereas the second features chrysoprase. With their naturalistic plant and animal forms, both look like they should be worn by a fairy or woodland nymph. They are marked HL (Heinrich Levinger), Depose, 900 (silver); and a variant of the second one is shown in Fritz Falk's Jugendtil-Schmuck: Art Nouveau Jewellery from Pforzheim, p.221.

      Super pretty, you know the one with the opal is the top of a hat pin? I love a bit of plique.

      Thank you all for your comments!

      Jewels1900, yes I saw a blue version of the opal one at https://www.barnebys.com/auctions/levinger.html Sadly, hatpins seemed to have fallen out of favor whereas pendants are still in style.

      Then it's the right time to collect hatpins.

      NICE!!! A joy to see Jugendstil plique, and Levinger :-D
      I collect Meyle and Mayer and plique in general (when I can).
      Hatpins can be very expensive when signed and in good condition...
