Love turtles? You need this!
This lovely little brooch or lapel pin is by DeNicola. DeNicola was a costume jewelry company existing from the 1950s through c. 1970 - so not only are their items a bit rare, but they're also very high quality, as this little brooch shows.
This is a turtle in gold-tone metal. The shell is composed of amber rhinestones; the same rhinestones also adorn his neck and head. He has a single green rhinestone eye. So cute, and so little!
Condition: I counted 7 rhinestones missing from the head - truthfully, unless you're looking for them, it's difficult to see that they're missing at all. No stones are missing from the shell, and I can't find any wear to the finish.
Measurements: very small! this is just .75" wide and 1.25" long.
I'm happy to answer questions, provide more photos, and combine shipping on items. Thanks for visiting!
