Round Sapphire Diamond and Wood Pillbox, circa 1900



An utterly beautiful and harmonious antique round pillbox in wood, ca. 1900. It is set with a sapphire sugarloaf cabochon and five old cut diamonds, all in a yellow gold bezel setting. Whereas the sapphire sugarloaf has stunning deep blue colour and weighs approximately 1.25 carats, the wood also feels very precious and has a charismatic walnut colour. This object has a scratched inventory number and an unidentified stamp mark. The inner diameter is 3.2 cm.
