This dramatic necklace, created for us by jewelry designer Jill Schwartz, is inspired by the charms worn by Dr. Dulcamara in the Met's production of L'Elisir d'Amore. Featuring a faceted aventurine bead, it is embellished with a assortment of fabric appliqués, Czech beads, suede and silk ribbon ties, antique gold- and silver-plated ornaments, and a mother of pearl button. The adjustable-length chain features a secure lobster claw clasp. 

  • Adjustable length from 28 – 35”

L’Elisir d’Amore premiered at Milan’s Teatro Cannobiana in 1832. The opera is quintessential Donizetti, and one of the composer’s greatest popular successes. Nemorino, a poor peasant is in love with Adina, a wealthy landowner. Unable to summon the courage to express his feelings, he buys a bottle of special elixir from a traveling medicine man. Unbeknownst to Nemorino, the bottle holds nothing but Bordeaux wine, but the ‘Elisir’ works some magic nevertheless.
