Comes a bird flown

Cute vintage brooch with 1.80 ct diamonds in white gold, around 1960

We immediately took this piece of jewellery to our hearts: The brooch, which is as funny as it is cute, is in the shape of a small bird in mid-flight and delights with its wonderful gemstone set. According to the hallmarking, the gold-forged piece was probably made in Great Britain and dates back to the 1960s. The surface of the small aerial jewel is completely set with glittering diamonds with a total weight of about 1.80 carats. Thus, the jewel dissolves into an ethereal play of white light reflections. Only a red ruby, which acts as the bird's eye, adds a colourful accent and gives the feathered fellow a lively look. The excellent workmanship and high-quality materials of the brooch are decisive for the value of the piece itself - apart from the wonderful design, which makes this bird brooch a very special "conversation piece" that is sure to evoke enthusiastic reactions not only from us.
