It seems as though every few years I remember that I want a vintage Phoenix pin/brooch that I can convert into a pendant. Inspired by @Smith3 and her new hummingbird, I restarted my search.

Found that Boucher made some glorious detailed bird brooches in the 70s and 80s, and Schlumberger also made a phoenix brooch. Watching these ones and would love opinions! Not all are meant to be phoenix birds, but the ones I like have the phoenix "look" to them.



Ps. I know the Boucher pieces might fall into the "fashion" category since the stones arent natural, but the workmanship is amazing IMHO.

Edit. The last 2 pics are of the same piece, just different angles

The second one is incredible!
I agree. But I worry that it looks a lot like a dove and doesnft have any red (which to me makes it more reminiscent of a phoenix). What do you think?

I could see that it looks more like a dove. I was more drawn to the movement & the shape of the tail feathers.
Some of the second batch you posted are incredible too!
Can't wait to see what you get in the end

Found one I love, except I would want a red cab in the "belly". Zero clue if that's possible ,but I might ask the vendor


18k white gold, old cut diamonds, and I love the wing texture
