This stunning Victorian-era brooch features a vibrant turquoise cabochon surrounded with a delicately detailed yet striking frame composed of intertwining Griffins rendered in 14k yellow gold.

Imagine wearing this brooch today as an amulet of courage and strength, pinned to a lapel, scarf, or handbag.
