Songbird Sara Jewelry

This spectacular antique Victorian brooch made in the Etruscan Revival style can be worn in so many different ways! It has the potential to become a real signature piece in your collection! It is named for the character Marguerite in Gounod's opera Faust, which had its premiere in 1859. Marguerite's famous aria " Oh dieu! Que de bijoux ... Ah! je ris de me voir si belle en ce miroir" is known as "The Jewel Song", and in it, she discovers a box of incredible jewels left for her by Méphistophélès, who has promised to help Faust win Marguerite's love. Méphistophélès has also left a hand mirror so Marguerite can admire herself and notice how the fine jewels enhance her beauty. I can easily imagine this brooch being among those tempting jewels! It is crafted from buttery 14k yellow gold and features three beautiful rose cut diamonds that glimmer with a mercurial silvery glow. They offer beautiful contrast next to the golden yellow! This piece has incredibly detailed carving, raised leaves, and so much dimension! It has two hooks on the back which allow you to wear it as a pendant and to hang another pendant from the bottom! The pin closure is also in excellent working condition. The brooch measures 1.93" x 1.25" and weighs 9.8 grams.
