Tail and hind legs stretched out at the back as he leaps through a golden hoop. He wears a gold collar and his ears and hooded eye are also gold.

This is an unusually large one, with bigger diamonds than is normally to be seen. Very well made and great design with a strong sense of power as the dog leaps through the swirling gold hoop. Great contrast between the diamonds and gold. A fabulous jewel for either man or woman to wear.
