Please don’t buy this brooch as it’s now on hold!

This is a very sweet tortoise brooch. The little claws and tail are beautifully engraved, front and back.

Made in about 1890 – probably in England – when this style of pin was very popular.

The rubies are vibrant and of high quality.


• Handmade in 18-carat gold
• Eighteen rubies surround a mabe blister pearl, and there is a natural pearl on one end of the gold bar
• Approximately 4.9cm long, 1.4cm wide
• In excellent antique condition

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
