Description The top of the gold pin is a finely modeled lynx head. A small molding on the shaft of the pin keeps the garnet bead and conical collar from slipping off. One setting with a tear-drop garnet is firmly fixed in the lynx's mouth by a pin, the extremity of which is looped. Chained to the loop is a second tear-drop garnet.
