What is it about animals that I love so much? One of the themes that always comes back in art and jewelry are animals. And if you are a reader of this blog, you know by now that I kind of adore them :-) And that I share my life with a small bunch of animals and that my man is a ….yes; a vet! I love to see them in art as they speak to my imagination. One of my favorite day dreams of my youth was to be able to speak to animals.
This cute little bear with different colors of diamonds and holding a perfect pearl is from the famous and much beloved De Grisogono
These days I am not day dreaming about that anymore, hahaha…
Amazingly detailed, look at the legs of this little crab. Autore makes beautiful jewelry containing South Sea pearls. Tje legs are in white gold with different colors of sapphire and tsavorite
But I love the colors, the variety, the faces, the interesting facts and how animals evolved to what they are today. In art and in jewelry, I love their form, shape and color. Animals also often represent something more to us.
It is a sort of classic 1920's feel about it, don't you agree? Bochic used diamonds and white bakelite. Bakelite was a popular thing to use in those days, maybe that's why I get that feeling....? Stunning bracelet
Maybe we favor special kind of animals like domestic ones: dogs, cats, rabbits. Horses have their own, very large, share of fans amongst adults and children. But animals like dolphins are still very popular, even in the most inexpensive ranges you will find dolphins and yes: lady bugs!
Although not into watches that much I do love some brands so very much. Boucheron made this wonderful scarab. With the blue top it is very much a Boucheron *thing* This watch is only for the rich and famous but nonetheless: I love it.
Then there are animals that we believe, bring us luck. The elephant with its trunk right up. Or animals that speak to our imagination. Dodo by Pomellato launched a very successful line of small animals, which are incredibly popular.
A cute little camel, you regonize the Boucheron signature?
Whatever you favorite animal is, you’ll be sure to find it somewhere, from the designers on Etsy to the famous jewelry houses like Boucheron and everything in the middle!

All the little girls I asked fell most in love with this pink sweet ring. It is the color and the butterfly that appeals to them. And as many of us, still care for our inner little girl we can wear this with style even when all grown up. Isabella Langois
