A great 18ct white gold sûreté pin with a diamond set elephant on one end and a diamond set tortoise on the other. They both have ruby eyes. A sûreté is a stick pin with a fixed ornament on one end and a detachable ornament on the other. There was a fashion for these pins in the early 1900s. They come in all shapes and sizes from Chinese influenced ones to animals such as this one.
