Antique Diamond and Demantoid Frog Brooch, Circa 1900
ABOUT THIS BROOCH
This ravishing reptile is poised to jump! Fortunately, the pin stem is designed to keep him securely in place on your blouse or lapel. Dating back to the first decade of the twentieth century, and packed to the gills with 3.15 carats of bright-white and sparkling European-cut and old mine-cut diamonds, this little fella has eyes set with rich green demantoid garnets all the way from the Ural Mountains of Russia and his nose is an emerald. A great one--and great fun! Hand fabricated in 14K rosy-yellow gold. 1 1/4 by just shy of 1 1/8 inches.
