This enchanting Vintage turtle brooch is crafted in 18k yellow gold with minimal application of white gold, weighs 23.4 grams and measures 2″ wide and 20 mm high. Epitomizing the ‘naturalistic’ line of jewelry design in vogue during the late Victorian era, this unique, masterfully crafted brooch depicts the profile of a turtle carrying its ‘provisions’ over a shoulder within a tiny white gold ‘bundle’. The turtle’s shell is artistically produced, using the unique Etruscan granulation technique, while the slow-moving animal’s feet and neck are artfully ridged to show the accurate anatomy of the turtle. The head is crafted in polished gold, while the lovable animal’s eye glitters with a sapphire round cabochon of 0.08 cts. The turtle’s bundled baggage is set with 6 antique rose-cut diamonds, approx. 0.10 I color Si Clarity. This alluring antique brooch features a rose gold pin with rotating luck for additional security.
