Floral Style Jewelry Set

Italy | ca.1940 | Gold, white gold, diamonds, rubies and emeralds | Italian jewelers (maker)


The colors of the Italian flag have been symbolically incorporated into this set of jewelry to highlight its heritage and glory. The master jewelers from Italy went to great lengths to select stones of similar color and clarity: 264 natural emeralds and 102 natural Burmese rubies, among tens of thousands of stones, to create this set of fine jewelry. The cost behind this creation is unimaginable and only a royal jeweler could have such resources. The blossoming flower shape, made of the most precious stones, was the most admired art of the era, elegant in its luxury.
