Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald Bird of Paradise Brooch
There was nothing low-key about the 1960s and this groovy brooch is proof of that. A full 3 7/8 inches from the top of its gold head to the bottom of its swirling diamond-set platinum tail (which, by the way, moves), this Bird of Paradise is finely feathered with bright crystalline red pear-shaped rubies and royal blue sapphires in a mix of pear and marquise shapes. No doubt, a pretty song emanates from his diamond-studded throat as he sits perched atop a diamond branch, surveying the scene with his emerald eye. We dig it. Designed and executed in the manner of Pierre Sterlé, but much bolder and colorful than the majority of comps we've seen.Total weight of 118 near-colorless diamonds, 3.35 carats; total ruby weight, 11.00 carats; total sapphire weight 5.25 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum and 18K gold.
