REAL SILVER ELEPHANT & CALF BROOCH BRS00017
A baby elephant called calf. The new-born is big enough: its height is 90 cm, and the weight varies from 77 to 113 kg. In the first month, a baby elephant learns to drink and walk with the herd. He needs more than 10 litre’s. of milk a day. The elephant tries to keep close to his mother, who trains and protects him. Kids are threatened by hyenas and lions. Soon the elephant begins to learn how to use the trunk. To do this, you need to train a lot: he raises objects, welcomes relatives, learns to get food and water.
Some people do consider elephants lucky. If the trunk of the elephant is up rather than down. Lots of elephant ornaments have their trunks up. When the trunks are down it is not considered as lucky.
There is more to say about elephant superstitions which this short article cannot go into, but suffice it to say, elephants and good luck go hand in hand all over the world.
Brooches were very popular in the Victorian era and were traditionally worn on the left side which was considered correct and sophisticated by people in high society. They are an accessory a lot of us tend to write off as outdated, but now days people are far more creative. Brooches are fast becoming a new trend again with people wanting to make they’re own style statement, are wearing them not only on coat and jacket lapels, scarfs, jeans but even on the sides of handbags etc.
The brooch is one of the most fun and versatile piece’s of jewellery that can be strategically placed anywhere on our outfits to give them more of a personal touch, they can be worn singularly in pairs or even in cluster’s, brooches can look really cool when styled right and can make you stand out from the crowd. Try wearing them at different angles to see what suits you best.
In my opinion everyone should have several brooches to go with different looks, or at least one for casual wear and one for a more formal dress.
This compelling elephant and calf brooch is crafted in real silver with a polished finish and a swivel safety catch.
