Nelson Rarities Inc

Throughout his life Fulco di Verdura (1897-1978) loved nature and animals. As a young boy at the seashore in
Sicily he admired the sea shells and sea creatures for which he would become famous as one of society’s great
designers of mid twentieth century jewels.
As a boy his family was given the exotic gift of a camel. Included in his surviving drawings are numerous exotic
animals including camels.
This camel brooch was created in 1967. The baroque pearl simulates a Bactrian camel’s two humps. The head of
the rider is a pear-shaped yellow sapphire. The kingly crown is gold and ruby beads. The balance of the camel is created with pavé diamonds, a cabochon ruby, gold and platinum.
