VERDURA: A cocobola wood Maltese cuff

When looking at this bracelet, one knows immediately it is a Verdura! The wide cuff with a gem set maltese cross that Coco Chanel made an iconic piece. Shame that she used to wear in matching pairs and this one is coming up for auction as a single piece. It will be at the Sotheby's NY magnificent jewels sale on April 14th. The base of the bracelet is made of "cocobola" wood and the cross is set in yellow gold with square cut citrines. It is an extremely elegant combination.
