This four-piece suite of 18 carat white gold from the 1970s comprises a bracelet, a brooch, a ring and a pendant. In these jewellery pieces, 34 Top Wesselton diamonds, with an overall weight of approx. 2 carat, and 45 sapphires, with an overall weight of approx. 7 carat, are organically and in parts florally composed. The arrangement is structured in different, multi-dimensional layers and thereby appears most sculptural and dramatic. The sparkling, round and marquise cut sapphires are beautifully accentuated by bright diamonds, which emphasise the colour of the sapphires. The interesting composition of the valuable stones and the noble design reveal the high-quality jewellery art of this four-piece set!
The ensemble is in very good condition with minimal traces of wear. The box-clasp of the curb chain bracelet has two security clasps; the brooch also has an additional safety needle. The bracelet, the ring and the pendant feature the purity mark 750. The overall weight is 36.5 grams. The length of the bracelet is 17 cm, the brooch 4.5 cm, the pendant 2.5 cm and the ring size is 55.
