The body of the bracelet leads to a pair of superb animal heads. Starting from the collars, enamelled and set with a row of natural turquoise. The Crocodile heads with fabulous detail: from the white enamelled sharp teeth to the detailed eyes and fabulous old red glass tongues.Each has a diamond in the center of it's forehead and 3 more behind the ears. The meeting place above the pair of snouts is square and set with a turquoise.
