This fabulous and unusual 'Aztec' style brooch is in solid sterling silver (hallmarked '925' on the reverse) and is in very good to excellent vintage condition. It depicts a beautifully detailed 18k gold plated llama/alpaca at its centre, surrounded by various Peruvian/Aztec symbols. It is an exceptionally bold, eye-catching piece - pretty much guaranteed to stir up a conversation - and the perfect collector's brooch!

The brooch measures approx. 4.5 cm (just under 2") in diameter, and has a strong roll-over clasp on the back which, although a little bent with age, is still perfectly working and completely secure. The hallmarking of '925', for its silver content, can also clearly be seen here. The brooch weighs a hefty 8.7g!

This is a very wide-appeal brooch, perfect for young and old alike and very much a unisex piece. It has a very substantial feel to it and heavy weight - it is clearly a good quality item of high calibre. In fact, this brooch pretty much has it all - so don't miss out on the opportunity to purchase something so special!

Thanks for looking! :-)
