Victorian Demantoid Garnet Ruby Diamond Gold Salamander Brooch
A sweet little lizard in 18 karat gold set with demantoid garnets and a spine of diamonds. Despite its diminutive size ( 1 5/8 inches long and 3/4 inches across), it packs a punch due to the brilliance of the parrot green demantoid garnets, with their characteristic acid yellow-green color and sparkle. Tiny little cabochon ruby eyes adorn the side of his engraved face, and his finely detailed toes are balanced by his curling tail at the back. A small S shaped loop at the back allows it to be worn as a pendant. Good looking enough to wear solo, or as part of a springtime menagerie on a suit shoulder.
