What a gorgeous brooch!!! As soon as I saw it I had to buy it for my shop here on Ruby Lane.
This image of a cat ( may be a small dog ) is woven with 14K gold wire.
As a goldsmith who has done quite a bit of work with gold I am amazed at the work involved here to achieve a look of furry pet.
The face of this cat has eyes set with white and brown marquise cut diamonds.
Nose and tongue are solid yellow gold and the whiskers are made of white gold wire.
The brooch is about 1.8 inches high and 1.8 inches across. It weighs 21.3 grams!
The back is made of 18K gold together with the spring activated hinge for the pin. The pin itself is 14K gold.
Please let me know if you can recognize the work of the creator of this fine piece.Gorgeous 14K & 18K Gold Wire Woven Brooch, Cat
