Joe’s Special Box Meets Pick of the Week – Volume 59

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling and A Collector’s Things

Love birds mate for life… this deep connection begins with a courtship that lasts a lifetime. These affectionate, sociable and intelligent creatures are charming and devoted partners.  During mating season, the bond is so deep, love birds can even become jealous.  

If the pair becomes separated, as soon as they are reunited, they feed each other to reestablish their link.  In the unfortunate event of a death, the remaining partner exhibits erratic behavior that can only be described as depression or grief.  

Evidence of these remarkable birds can be traced back more than 1.9 million years.  They’re cavity dwellers, preferring to make their homes inside of holes in trees, rocks, and even shrubs.  Within these homes, they live with their partners or in larger groups…  like families.

A pair of these charming creatures have been captured in this unique diamond brooch.  Made from platinum, the pin depicts two birds drinking from an ornate bird bath.  Shown on the hand, this piece is small in size, measuring just 1.25 inches from top to bottom.  

It’s very wearable, suited to a man or a woman.  Featuring a white gold fold-over double pin stem, it fastens easily to a lapel, collar, or necktie.  Two hidden loops allow this whimsical piece to also be worn as a pendant or slide, as shown below.  Each bird is comprised of two pear-shaped diamonds and a trapezoid-cut tail.  The fountain is formed with a dazzling array of fancy-shaped sparklers including three additional trapezoids, four emerald-cuts, and thirty-four Old European cut diamonds for a grand total of 3.25 carats!  Nine specialty cut onyx form a scalloped design near the base of the fountain. 

The array of diamond cuts, the stellar quality of the workmanship and the overall appeal of the piece caught Joe’s eye.  It’s a truly special piece that’s been featured on our site for $18,500.00…  a price that definitely lands in the luxury category.  Sometimes, price pushes a piece to an unreachable plateau – perhaps that’s why our little lovebirds haven’t found a home.  We’ve decided to make this bit of luxury into a featured Pick of the Week.  This tiny treasure is being offered at a very tempting price.  Check it out on our site where it’s available for just $12,500.00!  

These feathered friends are enviable in every aspect – lovely, devoted and valued.  Perhaps you have a soulmate, a partner…  a lovebird to call your own.  Show your love in 12,500 little ways.
