A Late Victorian Demantoid Garnet And Diamond Brooch

Description

A late Victorian demantoid garnet and diamond brooch, the naturalistically modelled lizard encrusted with rose-cut diamonds estimated to weigh 0.7 carats in total, and embellished to the spine with a row of nine graduated oval mixed-cut demantoid garnets, all silver set to a yellow gold mount, circa 1890, measuring approximately 6×1.9cm, gross weight 6.3 grams.

A wonderful late Victorian brooch in the shape of a lizard. Brooches in the shape of naturalistically formed insects and reptiles became popular in the late nineteenth century, and this realistically crafted lizard is a wonderful example of this style. The lizard is set throughout with glinting diamonds, with a line down its back of lime-green demantoid garnets. The eyes are set with glinting rubies and the lizard’s feet are naturalistically carved from yellow gold.
