Nicky Butler Gemstone Sterling Silver "Lizard" Brooch
Overview & Details
Nicky turns to desert-dwelling, fast-walking reptiles for this utterly charming design. Ornate silverwork brings the lizard look to life, while perfectly placed gems offer winks of color. Bold and distinctive, it's jewelry that scampers to the head of the "critter couture" pack.

Looks like the real thing!
I live in LA where we have a lot of these little visitors so I bought the green version to wear on my casual denim jackets. The stones are first quality and the colors are deep and well-matched.ladyprof, LAWas this review helpful? 4 out of 4 found this review helpful
