We are very happy to find that one of our objets d’art is featured as Idar-Oberstein’s Deutsches Edelsteinmuseum‘s Object of the Month for November 2018. The Morganite Falcon Chick was hand carved exclusively for Henn by the renowned master carver Alfred Zimmermann.
Working in harmony with the natural form and rich translucence of an exquisite Brazilian morganite – rare in terms of size, quality, colour and clarity – Zimmermann has sculpted an engaging falcon chick nestled in its gold and diamond eyrie.
This unique and highly collectable gemstone carving is presented in a sensitive naturalistic style. Fine detailing includes carefully rendered downy feathers and pure sapphire cabochon eyes with just a tiny glint of the formidable falcon that this chick will turn into. Yellow gold has been used to mark out the young bird’s face, already powerful beak and claws, as well as its nest which has additional feathery embellishments of white gold set with brilliant cut diamond flourishes. The piece is approximately 175 mm high.
A winning combination of exceptional gemstone, detailed with diamond and gold, the very finest craftsmanship and all the natural charm and appeal of a Henn and Zimmermann creation.
