Antique Art Nouveau Lion Necklace with Diamond and Ruby



Strong repousse engraving and fierce definition make our solid ruby eyed lion seem wild, with its flaming mane, yet it is a lion that prefers to bite gems, the proof of which is the .35 ct (approx weight) transitional diamond held in its pointed teeth. Nonetheless, it may keep bad spirits at a distance and make people happy. Created as a brooch of 14 Kt gold c. 1910, we added an 18 Kt gold chain and voila, a necklace to be worn from morning to night. All the engraving is highly defined from the eyebrows, nose, whiskers to its chin. The condition is perfect. It is 1 1/4 inches wide, 7/8ths of an inch high. Weight 14.9 grams
