A gold tone brooch shaped like a dog with a big head and holding a real green stone from Tortolani. The brooch is affixed with a locking c-clasp closure and measures 1" across and 1 1/2" tall. The back of the brooch is signed "Tortolani" and the condition is very good.
Gold Tone refers to a base metal that has been colored gold on the surface, but has no measurable gold content. Gold tone jewelry is not recommended for people with sensitivity to nickle or other types of metals, as it can cause a rash.
