Baroque Pearl Gold Mermaid Brooch


Designed in the tradition of the Renaissance Revival, this sculpted figural brooch features a Baroque pearl, diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and a single sapphire, set into a silver-topped gold mount. In Mannerist style, the artist envisioned the pearl as a mermaid's tail, modeling her head, torso, and fin tips in sculpted yellow gold, and posing her against her colorful gem-set harp with a scrolling old mine-cut diamond frame. Express the spirit of this wonderfully creative period with this original antique jewel that celebrates fantasy, art, and music.
