A beautifully made 18K gold vintage turtle brooch with a plique a jour enamel shell and bright gemstone accents. Plique a jour is a type of enameling technique where there is no backing to the enamel, allowing light to shine through it. The burgundy hue of the enamel in this pin perfectly mimics the color of a turtle’s shell. Diamonds are set in his legs, tail, and the top of his head, weighing a total of approximately 0.34 carats. A ruby and two sapphires are also set in his head for a pop of color. There is a European hallmark on the pin but we haven’t identified the maker! A great piece to add to your jacket lapel or sweater!
