Diana Hyslop 18ct Gold, Diamond and Resin “Fox” Brooch Pendant
 
The substantial, vintage 18 white gold brooch / pendant was made by Diana Hylsop for Schwartz Jewellers of Johannesburg circa 1980. It is in the shape of a fox, with blackened face carved from some organic material, and a red enamel shirt. The shirt is decorated with a star, pave-set with six round, brilliant-cut diamonds (circa 0.30ct total – colour G-H; clarity VSS1). There are two small round-cut green diamonds set as eyes (circa 0.02ct total). The brooch / pendant is surrounded by a halo of 15 light-blue, briolette-cut jewels (probably aquamarine; circa 20ct in total). The brooch has a white gold needle and, also, two white gold fixed loops, that allow it to be worn alternatively as a pendant. For this purpose, included is an associated 70cm long plaited black leather Thomas Sabo necklace with white metal alloy clasp and terminations. The brooch / pendant is marked “SCHWARTZ; 18CT”. The necklace clasp is stamped “Thomas Sabo”.
