Stunning Victorian Diamond Encrusted Fox & Hounds 18ct gold, silver, diamond and ruby necklace.
This stunning, quirky and unique antique fine jewellery piece has been created with the elements of a former Victorian fox and hounds brooch.
An extremely fine diamond encrusted 18ct gold Victorian brooch with the diamonds set in silver, which was usual of this period, of 3 hounds chasing a fox.
There are 48 old mine rose cut diamonds of approximately 2 points each (96 points in total) with 4 x 1 point old mine cut rubies to the eyes*
* Please note that I am not qualified to fully grade diamonds.
I have separated the brooch elements from a bar and instead mounted them onto a vintage 9ct gold fine chain, thus creating a unique, rare, collectable and wearable piece of jewellery.
Approximate measurements as follows:
Overall length of necklace: 18.75 inches/47.9cm
Hounds: 3.9cm x 2cm (max)
Fox: 2cm x 7mm
This is a quirky one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, bringing the wearer an item of jewellery as exclusive and individual as them. The perfect keepsake or gift to celebrate life's milestone occasions or just life!

Be Gentle with Me...........
Please treat your vintage necklace with the care and respect deserving of its age. Rub gently with a soft silver polishing cloth periodically to keep its vibrancy. Please do not bathe in your vintage jewellery. Avoid dropping on hard surfaces. Enjoy!
