This stunning, fine and impressive vintage brooch has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold.
The yellow gold brooch has been modelled in the form of a stylised lion's mask design; this has been determined by the nature of the interlacing wirework decorated setting with subtly alternating curvilinear strands around the mammal-shaped muzzle.
The cheeks/muzzle are further ornamented with a total of six individually claw set modern brilliant round cut diamonds, totalling 0.18ct.
This exceptional brooch incorporates two cabochon cut lapis lazuli, representing the eyes, in addition to a cabochon cut turquoise completing the design.
The antique brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and push fit fastening.
This vintage gemstone brooch is hallmarked to the reverse with an Italian mark (ITALY) an the 18ct fineness mark (18K).
This impressive vintage lapis lazuli brooch is supplied with an independent diamond and gemstone grading report card.
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.
