JAR: the Sex & the City diamond flower ring

Joel Arthur Rosenthal, born in the USA, studied Art History at Harvard, worked in films for a sort period of time and eventually joined Bvlgari. In 1977 he opened a shop in the Place Vendome in Paris with his initials. His pieces are extremely rare to be found and are incredibly beautiful both for their unique design as well as for the perfection achieved in craftsmanship.

One of his rings was featured in the movie Sex & the City 1, the wonderful diamond set flower acquired by Samantha's boyfriend at a Christie's auction!. In the movie the ring sold for $50,000, in reality that same ring was sold for almost $500,000 in 2006.
