BOIVIN: a tubular gold necklace

This is an important but casual necklace by Rene Boivin. A polished gold tubular design holding three pave motifs of diamonds and rubies. The loose rings move to reveal silver on the back. A young and modern piece despite being probably more than fifty years old!.

It comes up for auction at Sotheby's New York on February 2nd.
