A wonderful cockatoo pin from the Retro (ca1940) era! This fabulous piece is made of 14kt yellow gold and detailed with a pearl and garnet design. The pin depicts a cockatoo bird resting atop a gold perch. The cockatoo's body has a textured surface to represent feathers and dozens of delicate natural pearls cover its face, neck, and belly. The wings are decorated with cabochon garnet stones which have a rich, red color. A single diamond stone represents the bird's eye and the design is complete with a curved beak, individual feet, and raised feathers on top of its head. A natural pearl sits at the foot of the cockatoo as though balanced on the gold perch. The back of the piece is flat and is stamped "14K" below a secure gold pin clasp. This fun and detailed Retro pin looks fabulous when worn and would make a delightful addition to any collection!
Measurements: The pin measures 1 7/8" tall, slightly less than 1 1/4" at its widest point and has a depth of 1/2".
