A beautiful antique sea turtle brooch with diamond studded legs, and a head of diamonds and rubies that moves from side to side. The shell of the turtle is a large sea foam green beryl cabochon. Built in 14K.
Green Beryl, Rose and Mine Cut Diamonds, Rubies, and 14K Gold
Early 1900s, possibly with later modifications.

Good. As found, but probably has been restored at some point, with the beryl repolished and reshaped, and a the bezel possibly remade.
