Calibré-cut Ruby, Emerald and Diamond Flower Bracelet


Created in the 1930s, this flower bracelet is composed of rubies, emeralds and diamonds mounted in 18K gold and platinum. The high relief, sculpted form is composed of 6 calibré-cut ruby flowers centering round-cut yellow diamonds among diamond pistils, in clusters of two among calibré-cut emerald leaves with baguette-cut diamond veins, stemming from a stylized round-cut diamond vine. This technically brilliant, gemmy bracelet perfectly expresses the joyful return to naturalism that characterized the exuberant jewels of the early mid-century floral style.
