Madonna of the Aquamarine - Salvador Dali

 "Madonna of the Aquamarine" pendant by Salvador Dali

In researching for another oil portrait featuring the birthstone of the month for my series, What is She Wearing?, I came across Salvador Dalí's "Madonna of the Aquamarine". Given the time of the year, it seemed such a good fit for this stunning piece to be featured in my blog post.

The pendant is a notable piece of jewelry designed by the renowned surrealist artist for his wife, Gala. It is a symbol of his deep love and admiration for his wife, who was his muse and constant companion throughout his life. The pendant is a miniature reproduction of the painting "Madonna of the Rosary" by Baroque artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. The sculpted gold features a blue aquamarine gem surrounded by diamonds and sapphires truly making this piece exceptionally exquisite. The design reflects Dalí's fascination with religious imagery and his flair for combining classical and surrealist elements in his work. The pendant is considered a significant piece in Dalí's artistic output, showcasing his ability to translate his unique artistic vision into wearable art.

As the birthstone for March, Aquamarine is believed to bring courage, clarity, and communication. Its mesmerizing color evokes feelings of peace and harmony, making it the perfect gemstone to wear for serenity and inner strength.
