This opulent bracelet demands a special occasion complete with overt pomp and circumstance, worthy of the name, Tiffany & Co. Commanding attention, it sits on the wrist like a grand bangle, encircled by a series of lush violet-pink tourmalines, meticulously graduated in size and extremely well-matched in colour. The 15 carats of high quality E-G colour diamonds complete the look.
The enterprising designers at Cartier delight collectors with their ’Sorbet’ line of fine frivolities, conjuring visions of cool bowls of refreshing fruity ices straight from the neighbourhood Gelateria. Inspired by the variable soft pinks and bright oranges of pink grapefruit, apricots, peaches, mandarins, strawberries and raspberries, with slices of lemon and a drop of Lemoncello for added brightness, these earrings are set with a playful mix of facetted and cabochon gemstones. E-G colour diamonds provide the contrasting accents and lot 257 is a matching ring.
Mario Buccellati’s expertise in configuring precious metals into enticing textile-like treatments is obvious in this bracelet; row upon row of perfectly sculpted florets contribute to the overall impression reminiscent of dainty crochet squares.
