    Came across this piece a couple weeks ago in the Chicago suburbs. I'm a guy here, not normally into looking at jewelry, but this piece caught my eye in a display case. Marked on the back "Eisenberg Sterling", and I believe it is initialed. Has 11 clear stones in left horn and 9 in right, with red stones for each ear and another red stone that hangs from a chain for the "bell", with all stones being present. Knew that Eisenberg jewelry was a good name in costume jewelry, so I purchased it. And it's been research ever since!! In all the searches I have done on the internet, nothing really compares to the style of this. Have shown a couple people the piece, and we continue to have a friendly debate as to whether it's a ram or a long-horn? Thoughts?? Thanks for looking!!
    (Sorry for the original darker pictures! A photographer I am not!!!)
    Does anyone have any idea where I could look, or who I could ask for a bit more information on this? Ultimately looking for a value. Thanks again!!

      Beautiful! You have a great eye, I vote for ram.

      Thanks Bellin68 and vintagemad!

      SUPER-Cool Awesome! My Grandfather had cattle herds, and this doesn't ring any bells in my memory, nose too narrow. My vote is Ram, what is the birthstone in astrology for Ram?
    4. Mattsdad, 9 years ago
      Just did a search for Aries..diamond is the birthstone for Ram, although bloodstone is an alternative, and the ruling planet is Mars..red planet.. and the ruling element is fire..which is kind of red! Thanks for your comments and question! Research is becoming my forte!!

      This is the closet thing I could find online as to what you have- without even doing the research though, it's obvious you have a rare and expensive piece.

      Thanks Woman34 and AR8Jason.

      I believe it’s a longhorn...
      Rams don’t wear cow bells :)
      I know this is a very old post, so I’m bringing it up since we are talking “Eisenberg” today.
      Isn’t this a fabulous piece!!
      How about it guys? Ram or Bull?
      (I also discovered this piece without the bell, with only the collar. Original ( no pun intended) or maybe the crystal came off?) hmmm, could be a ram....
    8. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 2 years ago
      Rather than ram or bull, I had a different idea.
      The animal could be a sheep and what are assumed to be horns are ribbons flowing in the breeze....cute prized animal bedecked in a jeweled collar and fancy ribbons for showing her off for some occasion.

      It would make sense (to me) to wear a bejeweled sheep fur clip on a sheep skin coat with sheep’s wool collar.

      That’s a lovely depiction! Thanks for the input. Eisenberg Originals made many figural pieces, this being a pretty rare one in my book :)
