loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul." - Pablo Neruda



Diamond Nebula

Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Citrine Bird on a Rock Brooch, Tiffany & Co., Schlumberger ©
Estimate $15,000-20,000

"In the late 1950s, Jean Schlumberger was invited to design for Tiffany & Co., creating whimsical and surrealist pieces, incorporating natural and organic forms in his work. This iconic design was originally created in the 1960s for the Tiffany Yellow cushion-cut diamond of 128.50 cts."

EXOTIC GLAM is the concept for diamond nebula. Kind of an icon-effect, and glamourous, non-the-less with luscious, classic red lips. The face needed to be as exquisite as the over 15 grand she carries forth on her turban, along slide cascading peacock feathers. I had a blast with the shapes and colors in this one. Really an amazing piece of jewelry to illustrate; nothing better than to carry a diamond-encrusted royal bird with a crown, nesting above a yellow diamond.
