We have an affinity for animal jewelry--especially dogs. This is the most unusual we have ever seen before. Wear it with pearls or on a silver chain and you will garner comments and questions. We wish there was more information we could offer, but we can only guess.
The carving is perfect. The pet is eying the dog bone that is just out of reach. The pendant is large--measuring 2 1/2 inches (minus bale) in length and is 1 1/4 inch in width. Adding the bale brings it to 3 inches long. The inside of the bale is marked "925).
Additional touches include a small sparkling carved flower above the dog's head. A pink stone we cannot identify sits at the dog's feet and a moonstone (?) anchors the base of the swing.
The pendant weighs 30.7 grams and is in first rate condition. Truly it is a one-of-the-kind.
