In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. 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. Certificates of Authenticity: Various manufacturers may not issue certificates of authenticity upon request. Sotheby's is not under an obligation to furnish the purchaser with a certificate of authenticity from the manufacturer at any time. Unless the requirements for a rescission of the sale under the Terms of Guarantee are satisfied, the failure of a manufacturer to issue a certificate will not constitute grounds to rescind the sale. Gemological Certificates and Reports: References in the catalogue descriptions to certificates or reports issued by gemological laboratories are provided only for the information of bidders, and Sotheby's does not guarantee and accepts no responsibility for the accuracy, terms or information contained in such certificates or reports. Please also note that laboratories may differ in their assessment of a gemstone (including its origin and presence, type and extent of treatments) and their certificates or reports may contain different results.

Driven by the freedom of design combined with an integral focus on technical craftsmanship, FORMS is a high jewellery house which has mastered the art of escalating natural precious gemstones into wearable forms of art. With only a limited number of productions each year, every piece of FORMS jewellery is intricately designed with a sense of natural weightlessness and technical innovation resulting in sophisticated and timeless creations that invite the wearer to look closely from every angle.
A classic Burmese sapphire is elevated through design, shaped as a seamless dome which lies equally as unified on the wearer’s finger. Lot 1741 features a 7.95 carat sapphire with naturally striking colour and saturation. The immaculately positioned half-moon- and marquise-shaped diamonds provide a modern twist to an otherwise traditional and timeless setting.
Inspired by nature’s colourful creation, a striking peacock acts as the muse for Lot 1742. Stunning pear-shaped emeralds are surrounded by a structure created with tapering lines of marquise diamonds which appear to be staying afloat. A delicate detail of hand painted green enamel accentuates the vibrancy of the showy muse perfectly combining modern style with classic vivacity.
Finally, the essence of FORMS can be observed through the seemingly unassuming setting of Lot 1743, which in actuality serves a strong and powerful design when closely admired. The use of French-cut diamonds provides an edge to the construction without drawing away from the incredible 6.41 carat natural Burmese ruby of pure gem quality.
FORMS continuously strikes a great balance between undeniably well-crafted and elaborate jewels with a level of understatement that gives virtue to the importance of wearability and level of elegance to the wearer.
一直以來， FORMS 在瑰艷精緻與簡約素雅的設計之間取得平衡，旗下珠寶首飾風格宜人、易於配襯，卻又不失典雅風範。
