Story

The use of flowers, hearts and birds as well as amphibians as inspiration certainly was not limited to the reign of Queen Victoria. Edwardian jewels often incorporated a sporting theme. This particular example, rendered in 14k yellow gold represents an avian attached to a twisted gold rope and two prong set old mine cut diamonds (each about .07 carats apiece) grasp by its beak. The estimated total diamond weight for the pair is .28 carats.

Delicate engraving across the surface of the bird displays a realistic image of feathers and anatomy and a pair of red paste eyes for acute vision. In what may be seen as a dive bomb position, the gems dangle from the mouth of our fine feathered friend as the guide rope undulates and twists about its neck. The shepherd’s hook ear fittings with clasp finish the look and enable the birds to fly lightly on the ears.
