Guess the breed! It doesn't matter because it can't help but bring a smile to your face. Wear it and it will bring smiles to curious onlookers. The popularity of animal jewelry, especially dogs, has exploded in recent years. Jewelry designers have taken note of this increased interest and have produced many interestin gems to satisfy collectors and dog fanciers as well.
This amusing piece is a substantial size measuring 2 inches in width and 1 3/4 inch top to bottom. It weighs 17.9 grams. There are no visible marks. It has been acid tested several times and our jeweler and I conclude it to be silver with a heavy gold plating.
The face is covered with approximately 5.68 cts of rose cut diamonds. The enamel work is wonderful. The tongue is red enamel. The eyes are black and white enamel and the ears are enamel as well. The muzzle is fitted with tiny sapphires and the collar holds rubies.
All in all it is a novelty brooch in lovely condition. If you are a dog lover, you need to treat yourself with another pet that needs no special care.
