Fierce, fabulous, and mythical, this dragon's fire is all about the diamonds, and his or her treasure is all about that enormous natural pearl.
Victorian dating to circa 1850, rarely do you see a dragon that appears in flight. Legs up, tail curled, wing above, it is a three-dimensional artwork.
A natural, saltwater baroque huge pearl serves as the body. Its shades run in gradations from deep, purple bronze, to mid-tones of lilac and copper all that way to bluish gray white at the base.
At 11/16 inches by nearly 15/16 inches and over 7/8 inches deep (22 x 17 x 16.7 mm) its surface, luminous hues, and size earmark this as one exceptional jewel.
Fifty-seven diamonds add their 1.14 carats of brilliance adorning the head, claws, wing, and tail.
Both mythic and mystical, discover the dragon's lair.
