A lovely super fine 18K Italian Brooch. This amazing piece dates from the 1950's/60's. It is crafted from 18K yellow and white gold. The body of the bird is so detailed with a feather body. The head features long sweeping feather strands. The head features a cabochon Ruby eye which is bezel and bead prong setThis little bird must have been chirping away with its open beak. The belly of this amazing bird is covered with a pearlescent Peach Enamel which is in perfect condition. It also features white gold wings which are adorned with diamonds, bead prong set. He is perched on a small branch. The tail feather are an amazing array of Yellow, Red Orange, Blue, Green and Purple. The enamel again in in perfect condition. The back of the bird is affixed with a white gold Pin backing with a plunger clasp. This can also be worn as a pendant, simply by sliding a chain just behind the head...... The overall condition is fabulous with almost no notable wear. However there is one diamond missing on the wing so please zoom in on all of the photographs. I have reflected this in the price with a reduction of $200.00.
