This blog is for curators of collections of fine jewellery and for anyone who enjoys finding unique and rare fine jewels; be it antique, estate, vintage jewellery or modern magnificent stones and designs. From a collector, investor or stylist point of view, these are the best pieces that I have found that are for sale in auctions and antique shops around the world. Ultimately it is for everyone who shares this passion.
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.
