Salvador Dalí Tristan and Isolde Brooch
18k gold brooch with the profiles of Tristan and Isolde on either side of a brilliant-cut diamond chalice with buff-cut garnet love potion.
Signed Dalí. Made by Alemany & Ertman, New York, ca. 1950.
Diameter: 1-3/4 in.
Like with his paintings, Dalí applied his surrealist symbolism to his jewels, drawing inspiration from nature, religion, and mythology. The 12th century legend of Tristan and Isolde is a subject Dalí returned to frequently, reinterpreting it in a variety of media, including sets and costumes for the ballet Mad Tristan, the print Le Philtre D’amour, and of course, jewelry. The Tristan and Isolde brooch features the gold star-crossed lovers facing a garnet and diamond chalice. This chalice refers not only to the story itself (a love potion contributes to their ill-fated romance), but also, according to Dalí, to “the effluence of love possible between a man and a woman.”
Fabergé Holly Wood Photo Frame
