STERLE BAROQUE PEARL AND DIAMOND VINTAGE BIRD PIN
A stylized bird in the inimitable style of Pierre Sterle, the famed French jeweler. The head is formed of subtly twisted wire, with a diamond beak and eye. The body is a large baroque pearl. The bird perches on a coral branch, with a long flowing tail of flexible fox-tail chain, set with diamond sections, giving fluidity, sparkle and movement to this whimsical and elegant jewel.
Sterle's birds were among his most popular and iconic pieces, and are in high demand today.
From Primavera Gallery's collection of fine, signed Sterle vintage, estate and period jewelry.
