Carved Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond Tutti Frutti Strap Bracelet
Created in the 1920s, this Art Deco “tutti frutti” strap bracelet is composed of sapphires, rubies, diamonds, and platinum. It is designed as a highly stylized diamond vine with carved ruby and sapphire leaves and cabochon ruby berries, completed by a buckle motif clasp accented by a line of buff-top sapphires. Among the most original and sought-after haute joaillerie styles to originate in 1920s Paris, this extravagant and colorful “tutti frutti” bracelet reflects the profound influence of Indian arts on the imagination of Art Deco jewelers.
