Gorgeous Victorian turtle brooch, masterfully handcrafted to realistically depict a turtle, showing every detail of its feet, head and tail. The shiny white blister pearl which is shaped just right to show the curving shell of a turtle, is bezel set in yellow gold. Embellishing this center piece are 16 round faceted electric blue Montana sapphires, each set in its individual cups and secured by tiny eagle claw prongs. The front and back feet are each set with 2 small rose cut diamonds and the raised head of the turtle is set with one Old European cut diamond. A miniature masterpiece of jewelry and truly a unique collectible.  Circa 1870-1879
