Calibré-cut Ruby, Emerald and Diamond Flower Bracelet

$125,000

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.
