18 karat yellow gold custom made brooch in the form of a bird in flight, the body set with a pear shape amethyst (approx. 3.00 carats) and the wings and head of the bird set with 18 round cut diamonds (total approx 0.50 carats). 6.9 grams.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful vintage brooch. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis. The design of the brooch is very unique and elegant. The way the stones are set in the shape of a bird is very unique. The total carat weight of diamonds 0,5 and the 3 ct amethyst stone in the center, the material used is 18 kt yellow gold. I would date the brooch to have been made in the 1960s.
I believe that this lovely brooch would attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the brooch has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the flying bird brooch. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
