A ruby "tulip" brooch by Rene BOIVIN

Another great "tulip" brooch made by Rene Boivin in the 1940's. It feels like we could start another collection thread with these pieces!. It was just a month ago when Sotheby's New York auctioned a double tulip diamond brooch and yet we find this one in the Sotheby's Geneva auction. This one is set with cabochon rubies and brilliant cut diamonds and it almost reminds me of Verdura's pomegranate brooches!
