Western folklore and Pop Culture associates the owl with wisdom and knowledge – for good reason.  Found on six of the seven continents (all except Antarctica), with more than 250 different species, the owl has a keen intellect that fuels their strategic approach to hunting. 

The elf owl is the smallest, measuring just 5-6 inches and weighing a mere 1.5 ounces.  The North American owl is the largest in stature and can grow to be thirty-two inches tall!  No matter their size, the one thing that all owls have in common are their superior hunting skills – they even hunt other owls.  

These feathered friends have zygodactyl feet with two forward facing toes and two backward facing toes.  The fourth toe can be rotated forward to provide a better grip.  This is why owls are often depicted on a branch with three toes in the front and one in the back….  like this guy.  

This Mid Century Modern brooch was crafted by the legendary Tiffany & Co.  Intricately sculpted from 18-karat yellow gold, this charming fellow features a sapphire-encrusted head.  Round and deep blue, these sapphires have a combined weight of .70 carat.  A pair of bright diamonds mark the eyes and offer .12 carat of sparkle.  Every other detail of this beautiful bird – from the tip of his beak to the end of his tail – was accomplished by carving and etching the gold.  

Sure to attract even the savviest of buyers, this beauty is suited to any wardrobe.  Unisex in nature, this brooch will add a touch of class to the lapel of a suit, the band of a fedora or the hip placket of a sleek pencil skirt.  Priced at just $3000 – there’s no question that this handsome fellow is worth hooting over!  Check him out on our site or in our showroom today.
