Birds of a Feather

By Chris Boyle

French jeweler Boucheron has been designing bejeweled animals since 1888, when Frédéric Boucheron gave his wife a necklace representing a snake to watch over her while he was away. Nuri, the cuddling cockatoo pendant has a rainbow of precious colored stones to denote multicolored feathers. Both Tiffany & Co. and Graff Diamonds have exquisitely detailed brooches depicting birds. Over at Temple St Clair, the designer’s fascination with birds of prey has taken flight with her collection of three rings, each depicting a falcon in a different scenario. From its Animal World collection, Chopard’s peacock earrings drip with topaz and sapphires in shades of shimmering blue.
