A pair of JAR butterfly brooches

Sometimes when I write about a piece by JAR I wonder if I could be able to transmit the beauty and delicacy of his work, for the pictures never do. Unlike others, JAR's creations can only be appreciated when one actually sees them and they stand apart for the perfection of the craftsmanship and the unique use of colour. These butterfly brooches will be auctioned by Christie's Geneva on November 16th, the combination of pave-set coloured diamonds, sapphires and amethysts could only bear JAR's signature!.

There will also be three other minor pieces by JAR in the same auction and one should not miss the article about JAR's Imperial Topaz Earrings
