This very playful and suggestive portrait of a male Gargoyle's face was inspired by a carved Gothic image from the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris.
The finely chased and engraved face and beard is highlighted with hand-fired enameling. The protruding tongue is carved from Ox-Blood Coral and is cleverly hinged to enable it to swing with the wearers movements. The eyes are inlaid with fine Emeralds and the Gargoyle's helmet is pave' set with fine quality Brilliant cut Diamonds.
The necklace itself, measuring 19" in length, is composed of matching, slightly graduated natural Ox-Blood Coral beads. An 18kt yellow gold ball clasp, with a hidden mechanism, completes the design.
