Vintage Sapphire + Diamond Ring
Sea Lion Pin with Pearl Ball
This adorable vintage sea lion brooch is just a charmer, sure to entertain you and your friends. The artist truly captured the light hearted spirit of this smart little guy as he clowns around balancing a ball on his nose. The ball is a nice quality saltwater cultured Akoya pearl that measures about 7.7 mm, with very bright luster, very light cream rose color, with good thick nacre. His eyes are bright blue synthetic sapphires measuring 1.2 mm. This sea lion was cast in 14 karat yellow gold and weighs approximately 1/2 oz, 15.6 grams. His expression and the detail are exquisite-- created by a truly gifted artist and carver.
