Weird, Wonderful or Wacky? – Lizard Brooch

With my piece of jewellery completed, I thought we could take a journey through the estate cases at Harmony Jewellers. It would be like going through a very large jewellery box.   Your opinions on the pieces that we talk about would be appreciated.  Do you think the piece is weird, wonderful or just plain wacky?

After taking a look at the assortment that we have, it did not take me long to find a very interesting piece.  This is one of my favorites.

This is an 18K Yellow gold Lizard brooch.  The workmanship in the brooch is exquisite!   There are thirty-four round mixed cut rubies around his neck.  They really stand out against the gold and four custom cut pieces of mother of pearl.  The pieces of mother of pearl are very large and you would be hard pressed to find such large pieces today.  His gills are made up of twenty-two tsavorite garnets.

Covering the entire body are three hundred forty-four bead set round brilliant cut brown diamonds. Wow! This little Lizard is just covered in bling, bling, bling.

I like this little guy so much that I have made him (not sure why I think that it is a he) my screen saver on my computer at work.  Make sure you bring the picture bigger and take a good look at him.  Like I said earlier, the work is out of this world on this piece.  The total weight of the lizard is 42.60 grams.

Total diamond weight is 5.45 cts (wow again).  I might be a little paranoid to wear this little beauty unless I was so sure that it would never, ever come off.

Maybe, I would just showcase him on my end table resting on some old leather books.  A beautiful conversation piece.

Looking at the workmanship of this piece, the attention to detail, and how different it is, I personally think this piece is wonderful.  What do you think?
