Find Inspiration In: Flamboyant Flamingo Jewellry

Kenneth Jay Lane designed and Cartier set this flamingo in characteristic pose for Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor in 1940. The plumage was set with calibrĂ©-cut emeralds, rubies and sapphires, the beak set with a cabochon citrine and sapphire, the eye set with a similarly cut sapphire, the head, neck, body and hinged legs pavĂ©-set with circular-, brilliant- and single-cut diamonds, measuring approximately 95mm x 65mm x 22mm. Estimated at £1,000,000—1,500,000 GBP.

Seriously, how could this bird not inspire some sort of feeling?  Oh boy do I have ideas. Watch out!
