1950s Schiaparelli Watermelon Tourmaline Brooch


Fantastic watermelon tourmaline brooch. Designed by the iconic Elsa Schiaparelli who was friends with Salvador Dali. The asymmetrical gold metal bugle bead fringe hanging from a crescent moon shaped circle shows her humor as well as her "non-linear" thinking. Perhaps why she was friends with Dali. This piece seems quite like what one of his paintings my become if translated to fashion. An exquisite piece of work. Surrealism at its best! *All MRS Couture garments have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping. They are ready to wear upon arrival.
