George Lederman Jewelry has been on everyone's wish list for the past 75 years, when George Lederman established his wonderful designs and manufacture from New York, coming from Place Vendome in Paris.
This "hippo"pin is so special and unusual, made of 18 Karat gold with Ruby eyes and a diamond by his foot, that it makes the term "high end jewelry" have real meaning! While I love the carved hippos (I'm not sure of the plural of 'hippopotamus'!) that I am listing from the gemology professor's trove, thisis the first solid gold hippo I'veever seen.
