An Alluring Cat Brooch

René Boivin made this alluring brooch in the shape of a recumbent cat in gold, ebony and diamonds. The carved and polished ebony is inlaid with 18-carat gold to reproduce the markings on the cat’s coat. The cat’s eyes are beautifully set with navette-cut diamonds in a gold mount. The design is three-dimensional, so that the brooch can be worn as a clip on the shoulder to spectacular effect. As far as we know there is no other ebony cat brooch by Boivin.
