This one off hand chased solid gold Octopus brooch is a unique item. The asymmetric design of the octopus is eye catching. Fine matching vivid red rubies are set as the eyes and it clasps a white diamond in one tentacle. One the reverse this quality piece has been signed by the maker M Gruyot and as you can see the condition is mint.
Typical of fine French jewelry this realistic pin is crafted from solid 18K yellow gold. It weighs a substantial 12.64 grams. The total ruby and diamond weight is 15 points.
Measuring approximately 1 7/8" long by 1 9/16" wide (48mm x 40mm) it is a beautiful size to wear on any garment.
I adore how lifelike this piece is. To me it looks very much like it is about to move. The skin even looks wet.
The octopus has lovely symbolism. It is a symbol of flexibility and expansion, intelligence and adaptability.
