Stunning Diamond and Ruby Coursing Greyhound Dog, gold, silver, diamond and ruby necklace.
This beautiful vintage 'fine' jewellery item has been created using the stunning 'Greyhhound' piece (formerly a brooch), The greyhound is in full flight mode and is beautifully crafted and set with rose cut diamonds and tiny ruby eye.
The diamonds are very 'lively' and are set in silver, to the reverse of the piece there is evidence of a light gold gilt covering which is partially worn away over time.
I have show cased this beautiful piece on a vintage 9ct gold (with gentle rosy patina), belcher link chain, to which I have incorporated 2 rings, enabling the wearer the versatility to fasten at 2 different length points, thus creating a unique, rare, collectable and extremely wearable piece of jewellery.
Approximate measurements as follows:
Chain length: 19 inches can also be worn at 18 inches
Greyhound: 4.7cm long x 1.8cm high
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!
