1950s Schiaparelli Watermelon Tourmaline Colored Brooch

Elsa Schiaparelli


Fantastic watermelon tourmaline brooch. Designed by the iconic Elsa Schiaparelli who was an active surrealist and friends with Salvador Dali. The asymmetrical gold metal bugle bead fringe hanging from a crescent moon shaped circle shows her versatility in combining unusual celestial art nouveau motifs with mid-century design. An exquisite piece of work with an undoubtably dream-like quality. Surrealism at its best!
