An iconic example of Jean Schlumberger’s charming designs for Tiffany & Co., this “bird on a rock” brooch features a 2.69-carat diamond-encrusted cockatoo perched on a dazzling 56.65-carat citrine “rock.” The bird brooch is one of the firm’s most legendary designs, showcasing Schlumberger's whimsical aesthetic. The moment Schlumberger unveiled this piece to fellow Tiffany designers was actually documented by famous fashion journalist Eugenia Sheppard in a 1965 article for the New York Herald Tribune. Sheppard recounted, "When he sat down and pressed open the lid of the blue velvet box... everybody smiled.” The design was so captivating and delightful that an additional “bird" brooch, set with the iconic yellow Tiffany diamond, graces the cover of Tiffany’s 20th Century book.

Jean Schlumberger's celebrated work for Tiffany and Co. enthralled collectors and attracted notable clients such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the Duchess of Windsor. This citrine brooch is a coveted archival piece for collectors of fine jewelry. Set with platinum and 18K yellow gold.
