|Our Queen of the Beasts makes a roaring statement with her ruby eyes, hand engraved deep detail and a lion's taste for diamonds. Her feline eyes, and mouth are fearsome and strong, though she has a soft touch. The nose and brow are realistic. The mane, flying as if it was a pair of wings, extends horizontally as the bold cat speeds on her journey. She is kept in tow by a golden chain that will hold her at your neck. With the chain detached, the necklace is a brooch. Loops existed for our chain to be added. This necklace was made during the Art Noveau movement, one hundred and ten years ago, when hand work was stressed above machine made jewels. The name Nannye E. Bell is inscribed in script on the back along with the date 1902.|
