|Vintage Bulgari emerald, ruby, pink sapphire & diamond|
flower brooch, circa 1970. Est. $40,000-$60,000
The first jewel I looked at and my favorite of the sale was this stunning emerald, ruby, pink sapphire and diamond brooch by Bulgari, c. 1970. The large central emerald, an exquisite color with gem-set petals radiating out from it in a life-like flower design - almost giving the feeling that the blossom was caught in a light breeze. What an utterly delightful piece!
