A Finely Carved Tiger’s Eye Quartz Brooch In The Form Of A Lion’s Head

A vintage lion head brooch c.1970s, formed of a piece of finely carved tiger’s eye quartz, the head in three quarter profile with open snarling mouth, the muzzle pavé set with round brilliant cut diamonds, the edges of the mouth lined with diamonds and the eyes and ears also diamond-set, the tiger’s eye has been carefully carved to resemble the lion’s mane and the natural silky sheen of the material lends itself perfectly to this three dimensional, naturalistic carving; there is a gold mounted double pin fitting to the reverse as well as a hinged pendant loop making this a versatile piece that can be worn as a brooch, on a long chain or perhaps a short torque choker.
