The swan image is as evocative as the 19th century poem “Le Cygne” (The Swan) by symbolist Stephane Mallarmé and is just as beautiful as witnessing Tchaikovsky's classic ballet “Swan Lake”.
Perceived as a symbol of transformation by a number of cultures, you too will feel a spark of renewal when donning this rapturous brooch.
By the American company Krenentz, this Art Nouveau era swan reads like a three-dimensional painting. Highlighted with iridescent polychrome enamels, a natural freshwater pearl, and a diamond, it captures the spirit of this water bird among the reeds.
Although appearing delicate, the brooch watch holder is substantial in its 14k yellow gold construction. The piece unfolds a visual story of a gentle white enamel swan gliding through a marshy waterscape.
Even the back is textured and modeled and nearly as beautiful as the front. If so desired, this can easily can be transformed into a pendant.
