Let me remind you of Madame Walska's famous brooch with a yellow briolette diamond.

The creative minds at Van Cleef & Arpels, the legendary French high jewelry house, have transformed the Walska Briolette Diamond into a true work of art. Combining their signature design language with the captivating beauty of a diamond, they created the Walska Briolette Diamond Brooch.

The brooch in the shape of a phoenix, a mythical bird symbolizing rebirth and renewal, is made of yellow and white gold, and the body of the bird is decorated with a melange of precious stones. Diamonds, emeralds and sapphires come together in vibrant colors that convey the vibrancy and dynamism of the bird in flight. The Walska Briolette diamond is delicately set into the bird's beak.

But the uniqueness of the Walska Briolette diamond brooch lies not only in its design, but also in its versatility. The brooch can be disassembled into individual jewelry: the wings and tail become earrings, the body of the bird is transformed into a brooch, and the stunning briolette can be worn as a pendant.
