Here is a wonderful example of early Australian jeweller, made even more special by being made by one of Australia's most famous early jewellers, Thomas Gaunt. Dating from the 1880's, this lovely brooch was made in 15 carat gold and depicts a snake making its way up a pole where a natural pearl sits. Measuring 63.7mm in length, in total there are seventeen European cut diamonds that total 0.48 carats and is further highlighted with ruby eyes.
