Georgian Diamond Bird Necklace

$2,500

A magnificent Georgian crested bird modeled in silver with a gold beak. This dazzling avian is studded with rose cut diamonds with a single garnet set in its outfacing eye. Originally this piece would have been affixed to an impressive brooch but it was converted into a pedant at some point in time (not by us).
