“Theheart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides,and in its depths, it has its pearls too”.

-- Vincent Van Gogh

This magnificent brooch captures the grandeur of the ocean. It pays tribute to the timeless appeal of seashells across different cultures and eras. The centrepiece features an enchanting display of blue sapphires arranged in a gradient, invisible setting that recalls the ever-shifting shades of the ocean's blues. The dazzling blue stones are framed by diamonds that create a striking contrast. South Sea pearls dangle gracefully below, adding a touch of organic sophistication.

Seashells have been a source of fascination for humanity for their aesthetic and symbolic significance across various cultures. During the Renaissance, their beauty was highly appreciated. By the 17th century, they came to symbolize growth and the mysterious patterns of life, reflecting the spirals of the universe and the golden ratio. In the 20th century, artists like Henri Matisse reinterpreted seashells, combining their natural forms with inanimate objects and giving new meaning to their imagery. This brooch connects nature's artistry with human creativity, continuing the seashell's tradition as a symbol of life's exquisite and unfolding mystery.
