Vintage Animal Brooches


These playful birds are original vintage pieces from the 1950′s and 1960′s. Specific eras have always given way to certain visual trends. During this period of time, jewelers such as Cartier, Verdura, and Boucheron, were each creating collections inspired by a more whimsical approach to animals.

These three particular pieces from our collection are no exception to vintage fantasy.

The duck (top) the robin (left) and the owl (right) were all created in France by master jewelers. The duck features a slightly abstract design with a coral center, sapphire face, and added diamonds for eyes; while the robin presents almost a fairytale look with its charming design featuring a turquoise center, sapphire eyes, and diamonds for feathers. The owl was made with 18 carat yellow gold, pink jade for its center and green tourmaline for eyes.
