Enamel Sapphire Diamond Gold Bracelet

About

This fabulously hand crafted bracelet was made in Italy in the mid-late 1960’s. It comes to me from the estate of the author Svetlana Iosifovna Alliluyeva, and was given to her by her husband, Wes Peters, who was a talented architect and Frank Lloyd Wrights' right-hand man. It is a tour de force of heavy 18 karat gold and bright green enamel that is set with 20 brilliant cut diamonds which weigh .04 carats each for a total of .8 carats total weight. It is also set with 80 round brilliant blue sapphires that weigh .65 carats each for a total of 5.2 carats in sapphire. This bright and sunny jewel makes quite a statement, as did the woman whose wrist it once graced. It is marked ‘Italy’ and ’18k’ on the clasp. It is 7 inches long.

This bracelet comes with a full independent appraisal, the appraised value is $10,000 USD.
