Story

During the mid to late 19th century, the Victorians adored their animals. Dogs and birds, insects, horses, you name it, they reveled in their love of nature. So much so that they were often immortalized within paintings, jewelry and other decorative arts of the day.

Cats, however, are decidedly scarce in the jewelry world. Of course, you can find a variety of 1960s and 70s examples, often overblown, chunky and playful. But for exquisite cat jewelry for the feline lover, its scarcity is a fact.

The French have to come to the recuse having created pieces with their meticulous sensibilities. All in 18k yellow gold and rose cut diamonds, les trois chats, or the three cats could not be finer in craftsmanship, design and harmony.

Typical during the period of about 1880-1920, the gold work was often textured in such a way that adds life-like realism, shadow and highlights and a color and sheen both tactile and rich.

The three cats or kittens are each distinctive, all standing in various poses facing outward, forward and inward. Their charming gold paws rest upon a ribbon of rose cut diamonds. Thirty three are set in platinum topped 18k gold (.40 carats, H-J color, SI1-3 clarity).

Versatile, this can be worn as a brooch or as a pendant by threading a chain through the two loops at the back Weighty and superb, it doesn't get any better for our cat fanciers.
