Judith Leiber designed a collection of zodiac jewelry in limited production in the 1980's. Her jewelry was held up to the standards of her purse and handbag line. Consequently all items were uniquely designed and skillfully crafted using the best materials available. This extra large pendant/brooch depicts the sign for "cancer', that is it is a crab. The pendant is an over sized oval. The thick surround is gold tone with decorative ridges almost resembling a stylized sunburst. In the middle there is a recessed plaque (1 1/2" x 1 1/2") depicting in repousse style the symbol of this sign, the crab. The plaque is done in silver tone and the crab is highly detailed. There is another symbol on the plaque but I'm not sure what it means. The symbols are raised against a pebbled background that resembles sand. Naturally, because the beach is the crabs natural habitat. There is a pin on the back with a safety mechanism. The Judith Leiber cartouche is on the back. This piece comes with a gold tone double strand chain necklace. It is not marked but is of nice quality. It is optional and can be removed. It has a drop of 11". The pendant/brooch measures 3 3/4"h x 2 7/8"w. The entire piece is in great condition without signs of wear or age. This is the perfect gift for the lady born under this sign. However,it could also be a "gag" gift to give to someone who is just a "crab." We all know someone like that, I'm sure. Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
