A whimsical Italian made turtle brooch showcasing carved amber for its shell. Crafted in warm 18K yellow gold, the turtle’s head and legs poke out from its shell. The large piece of honey-hued amber “shell” has swirls of darker brown in it. The top is carved to lend the piece a more three-dimensional and realistic appearance. The back of the pin has a scalloped gold design so that when viewed under the light, the shell looks even more interesting. Marked “18Kt ITALY” for gold purity.
A very well-made and heavy clip brooch, this piece would make an excellent addition to any collection!
