The brooch has a cabochon turquoise body, a round ruby with an approximate total weight of .30 carats, and 5 round diamonds with an approximate total weight of .10 carats. The whimsical squirrel was from the VCA ‘La Boutique’ collection, first introduced in 1954. Circa 1960's. “This brilliant collection of whimsically cartoonish animal clips charmed new customers with their playful expressions and quirky compositions. Still highly detailed and made of precious metal and gemstones, the animated brooches made for great gifts and, because they were a bit more affordable than the Maison’s typically pricey pieces, more people could indulge in these adorable animals. As they added more animals to the collection each year, customers soon found the need to collect these curious creatures, turning them into one of jewelry’s beloved collector’s items.” From “Jewelry In Focus Curious Creatures Of Van Cleef & Arpels La Boutique” “Jewels Du Jour” by Natalie Bos, jewelry blog posted on September 1, 2012.
