Ella Gafter Blue Sapphire Diamond Snake Necklace

$49,000

About

The diamond snake necklace consists of articulated white gold sections set with a recurring pattern of round diamonds. The head of the snake shows the highest detail with mother-of-pearl accents and ruby eyes. The mouth suspends an articulated triad of drop shape faceted blue Ceylon sapphires of brilliant color. The total carat weight of blue Ceylon sapphire is 5.12 carats, and the total weight of round diamonds of top quality (color, clarity and cut) is 7.02 carats. The necklace is one-of-its-kind. It was entirely hand made with exquisite workmanship in our own workshop in Italy by gran maestro Pasquale according to an original design by Ella Gafter. The item is signed EG. “Celebrated for her elegant and meticulously crafted jewellery creations, Ella is known for bringing out the full beauty of pearls, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds with her impeccable artistry, flawless designs and faultless detailing.”

About the Maker

Ella Gafter

Ella Gafter is recognized as one of the world’s leading pearl jewelers, even earning herself the epithet of “The Queen of Pearls”. She is known both for sourcing these organic gems directly in Australia and for her exclusive use of pearls of high luster and uncommonly large size. Ella’s work has always enjoyed tremendous editorial coverage from world-class photographers and stylists in every type of publication. In 2001, an extraordinary corsage brooch by Ella Gafter was one of the very few contemporary pieces included in the American Museum of Natural History’s “Pearls” exhibition, which traveled around the world for 10 years. Recently, Ella has agreed to donate the brooch to their permanent collection; it will be prominently and permanently displayed in the new Hall of Gems and Minerals to open in the Spring of 2021. Every item is handcrafted in Naples, Italy. Skilled maestri, who combine the sculptor’s artistry with the engineer’s understanding of materials and techniques, dedicate their talent to realizing her daring, original designs. This marriage of the artisans’ guild-like discipline and Ella’s bold inventiveness often culminates in creations that transcend their purpose as high-end luxury products and pierce into the realm of genuine artistic expression. Ella Gafter has remained an independently owned family business since its inception in 1978. The business is run by Ella’s daughter, Talila Gafter, PhD.
