Jewel of the day: The Lush Life Antiques Deco Penguin Stick Pin
Next to my love of Art Nouveau, how can anyone say no to Art Deco? This charming penguin stick pin is a sweet example of the Deco period. Made in the 1930s, the little bird is rendered in 14k white gold set with diamonds on the body, a 3.8 carat cabochon ruby tummy and a sapphire eye and black enamel wings. It sells for USD $595 from a wonderful dealer, The Lush Life Antiques.
