The two birds are sitting on opposite branches. Their bodies and wings are done in a textured Florentine finish, and their little beaks are touching (kissing).
The garnet heart is shared by the birds--it measures 6 x 6 x 6 mm and is set in multiple prongs. Decorating the birds' wings are three rubies for each bird, 2 mm for each ruby. The birds had cabochon gemstone eyes (not sure which stone)--all but one of the stones are missing--you could easily dot the eyes with a bit of enamel or something else OR JUST REMOVE THE ONE STONE --it's really not noticeable to the naked eye. The brooch measures 1.25" side to side by 7/8" top to bottom.It's hallmarked 14k and weighs a hefty 6.2 grams. It's in very good condition other than the missing eyes mentioned above.
