VERDURA: An iconic aquamarine ring

Everyone has seen at least a picture of the famous Verdura heart shaped ruby brooch wrapped in a diamonds bow!. The brooch was commissioned as a St. Valentine's gift, and Fulco liked so much the idea if "gift-wrapping one's heart" that he used it all throughout his life. As unconditional admirer of Verdura as I am, I am not so sure how practical or beautiful this concept is as a ring, though!

This aquamarine ring is featured at Christie's NY auction on april 12th.
