Dating to around 1900, this wonderful brooch in 14K is set with 38 old-cut diamonds and 31 demantoid garnets.  This kind of garnet, from the Ural Mountains of Russia, was used extensively in jewelry of this period, especially in jewelry with naturalistic designs like this lizard.  The back view of this brooch shows the meticulous workmanship devoted to its creation; this was made by a real artist.  This fellow measures about 1 7/8” from tip to tail, and would make a charming and undemanding pet.
