The attention to detail and craftsmanship in this depose handmade French eagle brooch is remarkable and captivating to behold. It is truly hard to look away at the fine detail spent on bringing this eagle to life in 18-karat yellow and white gold. A red ruby is encrusted in the eye of the eagle while the top of the wings are encrusted with several rose-cut diamonds in white gold. The eagle dangles from its talons a diamond-encrusted leaf motif design with a natural pearl at its tip. This would be a fine piece to add to any collection or would make a terrific gift. It was crafted in the 1920s in France and is handmade and in excellent condition with normal signs of wear consistent with its age.
