This stunning, fine and impressive vintage brooch has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold.
The 1950s jewellery has been realistically modelled in the form of a turtle.
The turtle's shell and body have been crafted from fine and impressive carved smoky quartz; the quartz shell has been carved to represent the pattern of a realistic turtle shell.
The impressive smoky quartz is conjoined to the brooch mount via an 18ct yellow gold rope twist design around the turtle's neck and a plain band encompassing the tail.
The vintage brooch secures to the reverse with a hallmarked hinged pin and clasp fastening.
This impressive vintage brooch has been hallmarked to the pin and the underside of the setting with the French mark for 18ct gold (eagle's head) and the maker's mark.
This impressive vintage quartz brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
NOTE: * Smoky quartz is a brownish-gray crystal which can vary from transparent to almost-opaque. This crystal was known as the 'Stone of Power' with many cultures using the stone in rituals and tribal ceremonies to draws in the light, in addition to negative energy. These positive phenomenal powers made this stone an important defence against psychic attack, emotional and environmental stress, and it is to be considered as a vital part of healing and meditation.
Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
