Description


This fine and impressive vintage brooch has been crafted in 9 ct yellow gold and platinum in the form of a donkey.


The body of the donkey is platinum set with fifty-one old Dutch cut diamonds.

The saddle is ornamented with three old round cut natural emeralds and three old round cut natural rubies claw set within shaped platinum settings.


A smaller old round cut ruby represents the eye of the donkey.


The mule is held to the centre of a plain hallmarked 9 ct yellow gold horizontal bar which secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and safety clasp fastening.


The brooch has been hallmarked to the reverse of the bar, with the 9ct gold fineness mark (9ct) and the maker's mark 'D&E'.

The feature animal has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as platinum.


This impressive brooch is fitted to the original hinged leatherette presentation case with a satin and velvet lined interior which displays the retailer's mark: "Row & Son, Goldsmiths & Opticians, The Square, Ripon".


A contemporary AC Silver gift box in either black or brown may be provided if preferred.

The brooch is a very good gauge of gold and platinum and is in excellent condition.

The hallmark to the reverse of the bar is partially worn but remains legible.
