Vintage 1960s Bracelet in 18k Gold with Green Enamel Leaves, Set with Sapphires and Diamonds

She had the soul of a writer and a more varied and interesting life than most can even imagine. She spoke four languages, fluently. She was born in Russia but lived parts of her life in various parts of the United States, lectured and wrote at Princeton, she lived in the UK, too, visited Switzerland, India and more. She married a famous architect and lived with him for a time. He bought her jewels. This was one of them. She was my friend and I was honored to know her, she was kind and funny and wicked smart. 

This fabulously hand crafted bracelet was made in Italy in the mid-late 1960’s. It is a tour de force of heavy 18 karat gold and bright green enamel that is set with 20 brilliant cut diamonds which weigh .04 carats each for a total of .8 carats total weight. It is also set with 80 round brilliant blue sapphires that weigh .65 carats each for a total of 5.2 carats in sapphire. This bright and sunny jewel makes quite a statement, as did the woman whose wrist it once graced. It weighs 69.01 grams and is marked ‘Italy’ and ’18k’ on the clasp. It is 7 inches long and measures 13.3 mm wide and 7 mm thick.
