A ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond bird of paradise brooch.

A labradorite, gold and diamond bird brooch by Sterlé, 1960s.

A pair of enamel and gem-set toucan brooches by Frascarolo, 1960s.

A platinum, diamond, ruby and enamel bird brooch.

A renaissance-revival 18 karat gold, natural pearl, diamond, colored stone and enamel pendant brooch, circa 1880. I guess this isn't a bird, it's a chimera or a gryphon or something, but that's fine.
