Unique and beautiful describes this Lion brooch kilt pin. A petite snow quartz gemstone with a Lion or Lioness photo dangles between two Tigerskin Jasper hearts on a gold plated kilt pin or a snow quartz gemstones dangles between two new Jade hearts on a silver plated kilt pin.
I searched hundreds of lion photos from around the world to find the ones I found to be most beautiful. A big thank you to Martin Mecnarowski who photographed the lion in South Africa used as a background. Thank you to Vera Kratochvil who photographed the Lioness in Savana and my thanks to Martin Mecnarowski for the Lion photograph.
If you're not familiar with a kilt pin it was originally designed to pin a kilt (or wrap skirt) shut. Now this pin has risen to a whole new level with dangling crystals and stones and can be worn across the collar, shirt pocket, hat band, purse strap . . . let your imagination set the limits.
The Snow Quartz gemstones are hand-cut and best described as looking like shapes of frozen ice with swirls and veined streaks ranging from opaque to translucent.
Gold-Orange Lion Pin: Two tigerskin jasper heart gemstones are very unusual. Some look almost like petrified wood. Like all gemstones no two are ever exactly the same and the image (on left) shows the wide range in appearance they can have. If you like exact matches and symmetry this pin may not be for you. Amber and jet Czech crystals are above the hearts. Below the center snow quartz is a brown cat's eye bead.
Silver-White Lion Pin: Two New Jade heart gemstones hang on either side of the lion or lioness photo on a diamond-shaped snow quartz gemstone. Smoky and peridot Czech crystals surround the quartz and above the center stone is topped with a green cats eye bead.
The gem stones are approximately 18mm (3/4") across. Photo will be aprx. 5/8" around. The pins are your choice of silver or gold plated steel with 3 loops and are 3 1/4 inches wide, the longest dangle being about 2 inches.
