Jewel of the day: Boucheron Nuri the Cockatoo Pendant
I am guessing that if you have money to burn on jewelry, you are exactly the target audience for this pendant by Boucheron. Once you’ve bought your important diamonds/stones, iconic designer and statement pieces, but you still crave a little something something, well, a cockatoo pendant looks awfully good.
I think it’s adorable – two 18k rose gold birds set with tsavorites, diamonds and sapphires nestling on a little gold swing. There is a decent stone weight in this piece: orange sapphires totalling 0.61 carats; yellow sapphires weighing 0.42 carats; pink sapphires weighing 0.29 total carats; tsavorites at 0.45 total carats; with what looks like a single cut white diamond of .01 carats as one bird’s eye.
It sells for USD$11,700, thus bringing me back to my original point. If I had $12k to spend on jewelry, I’m thinking of a few other things I’d be looking at before this, pretty as it is.
