Cartier is famous for their wide array of jewelled bird brooches from the 1920s onwards, aligned with the fashions, feminine suits were becoming increasingly in vogue and jewellery houses were making beautiful brooches and pins to adorn those lapels. Cartier and their birds have become so recognisable that some have even ended up in the jewellery history books, notably the beautifully flamboyant Flamingo brooch that was created for the Duchess of Windsor. Cartier bird brooches are found in so many different shapes, styles, sizes and species, however the common denominator is always the exceptional quality one expects from a Cartier jewel. The gemstones in the brooches are always used creatively as focus points or interesting accents, of the highest quality and used with the artistic flair that Cartier is so well known for.
