Did you know that swans mate for life? The long pairings and the shared care taking of the young are lovely examples of the swan’s virtue of unity.
This graceful Art Nouveau necklace/brooch is rendered in 18k and platinum. The swans bodies are beautifully finished in a sheer peach enamel that highlights the underlying details, while the wings are adorned with twinkling rose-cut diamonds and tiny calibre rubies. The reverse is fully hand engraved. Truly an enchanting piece of jewelry.
