The cool translucence of a lizard caught mid-motion is created by Vhernier using its "trasparenza" technique of layering stones to create brilliant colour effects. This lizard is one of Vhernier’s delightful and growing menagerie of Animalier brooches. The Italian jeweller Vhernier is known for its contemporary designs with a sense of surprise and dash of Italian style. The lizard’s body is created from a layer of lapis lazuli topped with carved rock crystal. Showing painstaking attention to detail, even his little claws shimmer with diamonds.
