This is a fabulous early C clasp Victorian brooch. There is a split in the gold tone rim. I am not sure if this is intentional and is where the marker joined the circular piece. The piece is not entirely circular because of the split. However, it is quite stable and solid with no further signs of separation. The center features a large round cabochon with a tiny crack on one side and tiny chip when viewed with a loupe. There are four small turquoise beads that show crazing when viewed with a loupe. The four dragons have wonderful ornate detailing. The closure is a C clasp. Size is 1 3/4 inches. This is a heavier solid brooch.
