Magnificent Vintage Juliana Amber Golden Crystal Turtle Brooch Pin
Words to describe this beautiful and hard-to-find Juliana crystal turtle brooch.
A gorgeous 1" multifaceted oval, tourmaline watermelon aurora borealis topaz, open back crystal rests upon two layers of brilliant golden chaton crystals, to form the back of this amazing turtle brooch.
His dimensional head is formed by a faceted liquid gold open back tear drop crystal, and a Siam red, aurora borealis chaton rhinestone floating on a gold tone wire from each side forms his eyes.
Gold tone wires splayed from each side form legs to support his body and little sparkling gold chaton rhinestones with "Northern Light" aurora borealis form each foot.
This is one of Juliana figures at it's best!
This turtle measures 2-3/4" long x 1-3/4" wide x 7/8" high, and is in absolutely perfect condition!
These turtles can be seen featured in Katerina Musetti's book "The Art of Juliana Jewelry" on pages 119-144 where she shows examples of these wonderful and amazing Juliana figural brooches found in not only her collection, but other private collections, as well. Book price $140.00.
These figures brooches when found, are generally chipped, or their little wire legs have become damaged.
