Tosca St. Michael’s Wings Brooch
In Act III of Puccini’s Tosca, Cavaradossi awaits his execution in the Castel Sant’Angelo where Tosca leaps from the battlements to her death. Looming above the castle is the statue of St. Michael, featured prominently in the dramatic sets created for the Met’s critically acclaimed production of this venerated opera.
Handmade in the image of the winged Archangel Michael, our exquisite brooch is fashioned from black diamonds and jet rhinestones set in black metal plating over brass.
Measuring 5 ½” W x 1 ½” H, it is substantial in weight and has a heavy duty bar pin back.

Tosca premiered in 1900 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. It is one of the world’s most frequently performed operas and is known as much for its gripping drama as for its appealing score. The setting is Rome, where Tosca, a beautiful and famous singer, battles to save her lover Mario from the sadistic police chief Scarpia. The role of Tosca has been long considered a proving ground for great operatic actresses.
