This lovely brooch depicts a leopard in the state of calm repose. This lovely feline is the epitome of serenity and tranquility.She is calmly resting, taking a "cat" nap. Usually, jewelry depictions of wild animals show them in a somewhat frightening manner. Not so with Pauline Rader. The piece is in a shiny gold tone. The animal is fully encrusted with stones, these rhinestones encompass most of the body and there are small onyx stones that "pop" against the twinkling background. Two marquis shaped green glass stones depict the eyes. The feline is very detailed and dimensional. The tail and paws are brushed gold.
The "Pauline Rader" oval stamp is affixed inside. The pin's closure has a safety mechanism.
The measurements of the pin are 2 ¾ " Long x 1" Wide x 1 High. Weight is 1.8 0z. The pin is in wonderful.
