The Vintage Sixties Rooster: A Brooch's Journey Through Time

This charming brooch from the 1960s captures the essence of Vintage Sixties style with its delightful and whimsical design. Originating from Italy, it is expertly crafted in 18K yellow gold, taking the shape of a rooster, a symbol often associated with dawn and awakening. Adorned with eight vibrant rubies to depict the rooster's comb, it adds a splash of colour and vivacity. Radiating joy and whimsy, this playful design brings a smile, reminding us of the lightheartedness and creativity that defined the 1960s. It's not just jewellery; it's a miniature work of art that reflects a carefree era's spirit, making it a delightful addition to any collection.
