Antique Art Nouveau 18k Gold Diamond Griffin Gryphon Pendant
Casting an eagle’s eye to earth in search of treasure, this magnificent mythological 18k gold Art Nouveau griffin spies the glittering of a diamond and swiftly flies to claim it as his own. Known as a fierce protector, he vigilantly guards his prize and woe to anyone who attempts to snatch it away from him. This noble gryphon exudes animal magnetism, with the haunches of a lion and the head, claws and wings of an eagle. The textured feathers provide a lovely curvature to frame the body of the beast, which is a sculptural work of art. The pendant has a warm antique patina, with the high points of the fur and feathers worn to a warm, smooth finish, providing a stark contrast to the detail on the lower points of the piece.
The beast alone (without the O ring or bail) measures 1 1/8” in diameter and weighs 10.1 grams. The diamond is a lively old mine-cut weighing approx. 0.14ct. The bail is marked 750 with a letter S inside a lozenge shaped cartouche and the pendant has been additionally assayed as 18k gold.
This mystical Art Nouveau griffin is a very special piece. Its rare design will appeal to those who prefer the unusual and it would make a superb addition to any fine griffin or dragon collection.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Yellow Gold, Size: 1 1/8" without O ring or bail
