1960s 18-Karat Gold and Ruby Turtle Brooch



Land turtle 18-karat yellow gold clip/brooch with ruby eyes, circa 1960.  For some reason unknown to us, we come across a lot of turtle brooches depicting sea turtles, land turtles not very often.  It is very refreshing to be able to include this little fellow (land turtle) in our estate jewelry collection.  It is very cute, crafted with a great deal of attention to details that give it a very charismatic personality.  The sturdy double stem clip facilitates positioning it on your garment in any direction you desire... coming, going sideways and so on.
