Another fine example of our early Australian heritage and goldsmiths expertise in the form of a Southern Cross (or Crux Constellation) Kangaroo brooch by iconic Willis and Sons . Our early jewellers used many of our Australian flora and fauna in their work to exemplify their, and our, national pride and heritage.
This wonderful piece is modelled in handcrafted 9ct yellow gold and features of course the Southern Cross which resides on our Australian flag, and each of the five points set with a garnet topped doublet. The star of the show is the Kangaroo of course one of our national emblems.
Hallmarked clearly to the back with Willis and Sons hallmark, with associated 9ct gold safety pin and chain.
