Colour and Clarity: In our opinion, the cultured pearl is round to naked eyes, of medium dark grey colour with slight rosè overtone, very good lustre and clean to naked eyes. Diamonds are about F to G colours, VS clarity. Both the brooch and travel clock are signed.
Condition: Please note we do not guarantee the clock movement, which is quartz movement and in working order while cataloguing. Brooch in platinum mount. Both in good condition.
Important Note: The cage of the travel clock is made from endangered species and cannot be export. Please contact shipping department for further information. 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. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.
