Tristan & Isolde Brooch
Salvador Dali 
Description from 1stdibs:  ”The romantic opera Tristan & Isolde was Salvador Dali’s favorite opera. It inspired him to design this brooch of the two dreamy lovers who are attempting a kiss only to be separated by a golden goblet of garnet and diamonds. Dali designed the brooch in 1953. At that time Dali commissioned Carlos Alemany to fabricate his jewelry designs. Their relationship continued until Alemany died at which time Dali commissioned Henryk Kaston, a violin bow maker and jeweler, to fabricate his jewelry designs. Their relationship continued until Dali’s death in 1989. This brooch dates from the Kaston period, circa 1980’s.
The brooch shows the two figures in profile, separated by a chalice of a triangular buff brushed garnet and 33 full cut diamonds weighing approximately one carat. Signed on the back “Tristan and Isolde 18K HK After Dali” Dali (1904-1989) wrote of this brooch :"The heads are juxtaposed to form a goblet, which, in turn, suggests the effluence of love possible between man and woman." 1stdibs.com
