Cartier Diamond Feather Brooch


The playful energy of this mid-20th century Cartier platinum brooch, pavé-set with an array of diamonds in brilliant- and baguette-cuts, was designed with a free and spirited hand. In the form of a stylized double-feather motif, the sculptural dimensionality creates volume while neatly conforming to the body. Jaunty, curling feathers, set with colorless diamonds, add variation and a sense of fluidity to the design.
