Story

As the lion is regarded as king of the jungle, the eagle embodies the role of king (and queen) of the skies. Powerful and courageous, the image signifies a person of action. From the Edwardian era comes this brooch pendant of 14k yellow gold realistically portraying an eagle with its wings displayed outwardly. In what in heraldry is known as “statant”, the sculptural bird is perched upon a leafy branch. Generous in weight and large in proportion for its type, the surface is textured and modeled to the reverse. With head turned to the left, the bird grasps within its beak an old European cut diamond of an estimated .15 carats (I-J color; SI1 clarity).

Date: Circa 1910.
