These birds are so damn regal, they're sipping swan champagne from a fountain topped by Triton's kingly trident. Perched on acanthus leaves, they have a magical aura. Ornate, fantastical, romantic, and almost colossal in size, this brooch is a true gem of a find. Pin it to a boring waistband or a ho-hum purse for an instant upgrade. (Shown styled as such, with other romantic pieces currently listed.)
Vintage gold tone metal and faux pearl on pin with safety clasp. Unmarked. Design measures 3" wide, 2.5" long including pearl. Very good condition with minor signs of age.
Of the seven swan species on Earth, the most romanticized is the Mute Swan (Cygnus olor), whose elegant appearance is replicated in everything dreamy and fantastical from wedding invitations and ballets to paddle boats and pool floaties. Mute Swans are beautifully aggressive as well. So when you see them floating gracefully at your local park, give them lots of space to just do their pretty thing in peace.
