A Delightful Natural Oriental Pearl, Gold, Diamond and Gemset Love Birds Brooch

A charming natural oriental saltwater pearl, gold and gem-set love bird brooch by Cartier c.1950s, designed as a pair of little love birds perched together on a coral branch, realistically modelled in 18ct yellow gold, the bodies formed of a cream round baroque pearl, the heads, tails and wings in textured gold to resemble feathers, the wings topped with round brilliant cut diamonds set in platinum and the eyes set with turquoise cabochons, all to a double clip brooch fitting. These delightful little birds are full of charm and personality, nestled close together and turned to face one another with beaks touching – it’s as if we’ve caught them mid kiss. The mix of gem materials contrast with but also complement each other and the warmth of the gold in this diminutive, sweetly romantic brooch.
