Jewel of the day: Swarovski Volupt Brooch

I find this Volupt brooch from Swarovski intriguing. I was told it’s meant to be worn at the collar, presumably with one piece on either side. They don’t show a photo of the reverse, so I am assuming there is a pin back on each of the elements. (I think a clip mechanism probably would have been easier to use …)

It’s available from Swarovski for USD $100.

I’m dubious that this is the start of a new trend. It actually reminds me of the sweater clips so popular in the 1950s, and the cloak clasps used in the 1800 and early 1900s. What do you think – cool vintage look or a retro fad that needs more time to pass by before it makes a reapperance?
