This pair of 18K yellow gold hoop earrings is unusual because they are slightly oval in shape. They are just under 1-1/2" wide by 1-1/4" high and weigh 7.8 dwt or 12.1 g. They are marked on a plaque 18K Italy with a style number, and each hoop has a gypsy set ruby on the inside, which is the trademark of Roberto Coin, the modern jewelry designer with counters in Saks, Lord & Taylor, etc. The minor surface scratching that appears in the photos is not visible to the naked eye, but can be polished out. The earrings date to about the 1990's, and the condition is excellent.

This is a new Buccellati sterling silver picture frame in the Linen Fold pattern, in the original box with the paper enclosure, perfect for gift giving in the upcoming season. The frame itself measures 5-1/4" x 4-1/8", and the glass opening for the picture, which is bevelled, is 3-1/4"x 2-1/8". There is a green moire background under the glass. There is a green leather easel back, which allows the frame to be used horizontally or vertically. It is marked on the edge Gianmaria Buccellati 925, which indicates that it was purchased in Italy. In the U.S. the mark is simply Buccellati. It was purchased in Italy in the 1990's and has never been used.

These 18K white gold earrings in the form of flowers are invisibly set with a total of 24 carats of blue calibre cut sapphires. The sapphires are deep blue and extremely evenly matched. Because of the lighting required for the picture, the even match of the sapphires may not be fully apparent. They are marked 750 and are 3/4" in diameter. There are 5 petals on each earring, and they are lobed to simulate the appearance of real flowers. This design requires cutting non-uniform stones for the irregular edges. Each stone was individually cut to fit together in the channels that are visible on the back.
