This brooch, which was made by Cartier in the 1990’s, features a tiny elephant family out for a tiny walk. Please note how they are adorably holding each others’ tiny tails with their tiny trunks. Each elephant has a tiny emerald eye and the central elephant (which looks like the mama, to me) is encrusted with diamonds. Also, one of them is a baby. An itty-bitty, teeny-tiny, baby elephant made of gold! I have no words.
The brooch is made of 18 k yellow gold and set with 2 carats of diamonds as well as several tiny emeralds. I want to hold it in my hand and make the elephants walk around my desk. Let’s look at more baby elephants.
