One of the most unique whimsy pieces I have ever seen. I refer to him as "The Wiggle Man". Made of 14k gold not marked that I can find but tested and guaranteed to be so. This is quite a large piece and has great weight at 7.9 grams. He, though I guess it could be she ?? Measures 42mm long by 24mm wide(width measured at head).
The green gem cabochon that serves as it's head was tested on presidium gem tester and is testing as jade. The black cabochon body is onyx. It is my opinion that the Jade is likely color enhanced.
This cutie is articulated, meaning he moves. His head is attached to the body so that he moves side to side. The little pearl earrings also jiggle around. The movement of his body and the earrings is just so cute.
I have placed a removable brooch pendant converter on this piece so that it may also be worn a pendant. A free little gift as I am in love with these converters. This particular one is 1/20th 14k which is far nicer than most of the plated ones you find. I actually have several of these because I am personally not much of a brooch wearer but love the antique ones. This converter simply slides on to the pin and you clasp the pin shut. Voila' you have a pendant. This can also be removed and worn with you favorite brooch if you have them as well.
I love anything unusual and unique which this certainly is. I tried researching to find another but was unable to locate. A true conversation piece.
