Victorian Lizard Brooch
with Diamond Eyes in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
An antique 14k gold brooch that takes the form of a lizard, whose curious expression is enhanced by a pair of sparkling old mine cut diamond eyes. This charming fellow is deeply engraved with an angular pattern of scales; he is also lightly textured. These details make the lizard's already high, yellow gold color especially rich and vibrant. Closure is a curly c-catch. This brooch is solid, not hollow-form.
c. 1890 - 1900
Measures approx 52.35 mm (just over 2") x 15.8; diamonds measure approx 2 mm.
