Aquamarine Bow Pin/Pendant
Sparkle With Retro Elegance. Displayed in our National Museum of American History, the original 1940 Aquamarine Bow Pin/Pendant is set with a striking, emerald-cut aquamarine within a swirling bow design—a classic art deco motif resurging in popularity today. Our sparkling Smithsonian-licensed reproduction is hand-set with Austrian Swarovski® crystals on rhodium-plated brass. Handmade and variations may occur. 1.6" x 1.25".
Gems accumulate history. The very stone that once adorned a king or queen might today be set in someone’s cocktail ring. (The history of the Hope Diamond includes a stint in the French Crown Jewels, a daring theft, two recuttings, and purchase by an English king.) The astonishing replica collections presented on these next pages—a mere sampling of the extraordinary holdings in our National Museum of Natural History’s National Gem Collection—let you dazzle in their reflected glory.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
