This stunning, fine and impressive vintage bird brooch has been crafted in 18 ct yellow gold.

The brooch has been modelled in the form of a hummingbird*.

The pierced decorated frame is embellished with an engraved decoration, and accented with rope twist decoration.

The head of the bird is represented by a fancy cabochon cut moonstone, and a collet set 0.03 ct round cut ruby represents the eye.

A substantial red coral cabochon is four claw set to the body of the bird.

The brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and push fit clasp.

The bird is hallmarked to the reverse of the setting with the Italian hallmark for the maker Garavelli Aldo & C. and town mark of Alessandria (237 AL), in addition to the 18 ct gold fineness mark (750).

NOTE: *The bird has been determined as a hummingbird due to the characteristics of the body and distinguishable tail feathers displayed by a spatuletail hummingbird.

Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
