Cute 18k Gold Diamond & Sapphire Lion Pin / Brooch
Presented is a nice 18 karat gold and gemstone pin in the form of a lion. This piece dates to around the 1950s-1980s and is very likely of American make. The pin is made in a charmingly stylized, almost cartoon type lion form. The lion is
nicely textured, with gold wire for the whiskers and mane. The lion has a sapphire nose, green stone eyes and diamond accents set around his whiskers, in white gold so they really pop. He also doesn't appear to have arms, but he
hasn't let that stop him. The clasp is a rollover safety style, nice and secure.
The pin is stamped and guaranteed 18k.
The pin is about 1 3/4 inches long.
This piece weighs 17.7 grams.
