Description

  • ruby, coloured sapphire, diamond, tsavortie garnet, gold
Modelled as a ladybug, the wings set with calibré-cut rubies and black sapphires together weighing approximately 30.00 carats, opening to reveal a pear-shaped morganite weighing approximately 10.00 carats, decorated by circular-cut diamonds together weighing approximately 1.10 carats, highlighted by tsavorite garnet eyes, mounted in 18 karat white gold.

Condition

Colour and Clarity: In our opinion, the rubies are of intense pinkish red colour, eye clean and some stones may have natural inclusions under loupe check but not seen to naked eyes. Morganite is of pastel purplish pink colour, clean to both naked eyes and loupe check. Cabochon black sapphires are semi-translucent to opaque, and two tsavorite garnets are lively, of medium yellowish green colour. Diamonds are about F to G colours, VS clarity. Condition: This brooch is offered without reserve. Whimsical design with nice workmanship, in very good condition. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that jadeite and rubies of Burmese origin and articles of jewellery containing jadeite or rubies of Burmese origin all less than 100 years old may not be imported into the US. The purchaser's inability to import any item into the U.S. or any other country as a result of these or other restrictions shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale or any delay in payment. Please check with the specialist department if you are uncertain as to whether a lot is subject to these import restrictions, or any other restrictions on importation or exportation.
In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.

Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion. Illustrations in the catalogue may not be actual size. Prospective purchasers are reminded that, unless the catalogue description specifically states that a stone is natural, we have assumed that some form of treatment may have been used and that such treatment may not be permanent. Our presale estimates reflect this assumption.
