Exquisite c.1900 14K Garnet and Seed Pearl Griffin Brooch and Pendant
Expertly crafted and exquisite c.1900 14K yellow gold, garnet, and seed pearl Griffin brooch. This piece is very unique in its representation of the mythical creature and features a garnet eye with its beak around a round pearl. Seed pearls (12 total) are set within the arrow that the Griffin curls and lays its body over. The body is finely detailed with intricate engraving work that sees texture within each feather of both wings. This piece can alternatively be worn as a pendant as there is a bale affixed to the back of the Griffin's head to accommodate a chain.
