Next oldest is the Selkie (leopard seal) jewel. The selkie is a wild mismatch of pearls. The head is a Tahitian black baroque pearl, and the flippers are the lowest quality of dyed freshwater baroques. The body is of jewelers silver set with black diamonds for the spots. This little beauty is more of an inspired by period baroque pearl jewels than an attempt to create one. To sum up the glaring difference, the big baroque pearls are at the edges of the piece not embedded in the center.
