About

Antique-inspired Emerald, Diamond Gold Brooch with Yellow Sapphire Shaped like a gorgeous feather with a flat-cut emerald as focus-point, this Emerald, Diamond Gold Brooch with Yellow Sapphire is so exquisite that it can be compared with one of the sculptural masterpieces of the Roman baroque style, the ‘Ecstasy of Saint Teresa.’ The sculpture was inspired by a vision of Saint Teresa, which she described in a very visual, even sexual way. An angel plunged a golden spear into her heart, leaving her breathless and consumed with a spiritual pain so intense that she did not want it to end. This brooch is the contemporary transformation of the sculpture found in the Cornaro Chapel, in Santa Maria della Vittoria, in Rome. The artist was Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Why do we say this? Bernini began by designing the chapel as the 'theatre' for his sculpture. Similarly, the Vintage-inspired Emerald, Diamond Gold Brooch also needs a setting, a background. That, of course, is you! The ‘Ecstasy’ is floodlit by beams of natural light from a hidden window. The natural light mingles with the shine from a cluster of vertical bronze shafts behind the sculpture, shaped to bear a resemblance to the rays of the sun. Imagine this precious gold brooch in your outstretched hand. Rays of rainbow aurora will bounce and shimmer, just like it does on the ‘Ecstasy of Saint Teresa.’ Features of the Antique-inspired Emerald, Diamond Gold Brooch with Yellow Sapphire: It is all precious stones in this royal brooch. Diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds reign supreme among all jewels and are considered precious stones. Initially mined in Africa, the 1.10-carat focal emerald is our ‘Ecstasy.’ The emerald is slightly blueish in its green with an intense saturation, making it one of the most desirable colors for this precious stone. Tiny diamonds, polished and cut to perfection, form part of a striking floral spray. The carefully placed ‘shafts’ is the perfect backdrop. This brooch can be a future heirloom or collector's item. Baroque Art wanted to involve the viewer. Let this baroque-inspired Emerald, Diamond Gold Brooch elevate the reality of your life to a new spiritual level. Understand something about the intensity and the passion of what Saint Teresa experienced when you wear this brooch. It is extraordinary! Gold brooch with natural emerald with diamonds, tsavorite, yellow sapphire (original mining - Africa) emerald measurements - 0.12 x 0.2 x 0.28 in / 3 х 5 х 7 mm - 1,10 ct brooch measurements - 0.39 x 1.34 x 2.52 in / 10 х 34 х 64 mm
