Whether a crab is your zodiac sign or you have a crabby statement to make, with humor, of course, this fun brooch is perfect!

Designed by the famous Mazza Company which started in Italy in the 1840's with handcrafted items made from seashells and coral. At the turn of the 20th century, Louis Mazza brought his business to the U.S. where it continued to expand and include four sons, later his three grandsons. MAZ jewelry has been sold at Bergdorf Goodman, I. Magnin & Co. It is highly collectible, mainly because it is so colorful and fun.

This charming crab features a central cockle shell adorned with 14k gold beads of 2mm and bezel set cabochon rubies, sapphires and an emerald. The colored gems are 3.0mm. The antennae feature two 3.5mm sapphires. The cockle shell is backed with mother of pearl.

Overall, the brooch is 2 3/4" by 1 5/8". It weighs 20.5 grams. It is fully signed and marked.
