Creepy Crawlies

Preparation for Halloween.

You can't deny the craftsmanship that goes into this piece of jewellery. It's the size of a miniature (1inch x 1.5inch) and fully 3-dimensional. I think it was made for a wildlife themed international jewellery exhibition. So it isn't bespoke and I didn't have to break the bank to buy it. Diamonds are pave set into a rose gold base, with a 0.3 carat diamond at it's mouth, followed by channel set baguette cut diamonds in a gold loop. Perfect for Halloween I think.

The jeweller also made a lizard with pink sapphires and blackened gold. It's convertible from a ring into 2 pendant designs. If you flip the lizard up, the foot rests on the diamond wreaths. When you flip the lizard down, the paw rests on the diamond wreaths. From the side view, the setting achieves a certain height as diamonds are set all around (top, left & right) to form the wreaths. Remarkable detailing with pink sapphires set on the base of the ring on both sides (see sharp pointed end).

Black gold is so edgy. Looking forward to it being used more.
