Pierre Sterlé, the renowned French jewelry designer, was especially known for his fabulous bird brooches. This one is a real beauty. Impressive in size, the wings are spread as if the bird is in flight. The body is coral, and the beautifully wrought and detailed wings are in 18k gold, highlighted with diamonds. This piece is a perfect expression of the new Naturalism that was so much a part of 1950’s jewelry design.
