Story

The swan image is as evocative as the 19th century poem “Le Cygne” (The Swan) by symbolist Stephane Mallarmé and as beautiful as witnessing Tchaikovsky's classic ballet “Swan Lake”. Perceived as a symbol of transformation by a number of cultures you, too will be renewed when placing this rapturous brooch upon your person.

Although appearing delicate, the brooch watch holder is quite substantial in its 14k yellow gold construction. The piece unfolds a visual story of a gentle white enamel swan on the calm surface of a pond. With feathered wings outlined in gold enamel slightly spread and long neck gracefully lowered she tastes of the sweet blue enamel waters and nibbles at a gold morsel set with a small old mine cut diamond of about .03 carats. Shielded from the sun under an arch of white and gold enamel calla lilies and leaves amidst quiet curves of textured gold stems, the vulnerable swan remains uninterrupted.

If so desired, this lovely period brooch and watch holder easily can be transformed into a pendant.

Date: Circa 1900.
