Cat and Mouse Sûreté Pin, David Morris (b. Louth, England), c. 2000, gold, emeralds and diamonds, 4 inches long. 4260
From the London jewelry house of David Morris comes this sûreté, or jabot pin. Concealing the functional pin while revealing decorative ends, this style is ideally suited to the playful design of a cat and mouse. Set in 18K gold, brilliant-cut diamonds form the cat’s collar, while cabochon emeralds create its gleaming eyes.
