Sabbadini 18.00ctw Invisible Set Near Flawless Burma Ruby, 2.20ctw VS1-VS2/G-H Diamond & Solid 18K Yellow Gold 1.25" Convertible French-Clip/Clip-On Earrings - These stunning earrings are made of solid 18k yellow gold, and contain approx. 18.00ctw near flawless Burma Rubies. These gorgeous earrings were made by famed jeweler Sabbadini, and come from an elite Beverly Hills estate. The earrings have a floral motif, and contain approx. 12.00ctw genuine near flawless Burma Rubies, invisibly set in the Sabbadini style. These earrings are the work of a master jeweler, as this setting is extremely complex to create, and would have taken hours to complete. The rubies are a stunning raspberry red color, and have a beautiful brightness about them. This is a true investment piece, as you cannot find rubies of this quality in today's market, due to the United States having a ban on the importation of Burma Rubies from Myanmar since 2003. The earrings are also adorned with 2.20ctw genuine VS1-VS2/G-H diamonds that are a stunning, fiery white color and look gorgeous against the high karat yellow gold and bright red color of the rubies. Sabbadini Jewelry was started in 1940 by Bruno Sabbadini, and is currently under the leadership of his son Alberto. They are based in the heart of Milan, and cater to high-end Milan privates. They are known as one of Italy's premier gioielliere (jeweler in Italian), and also have show rooms in NY and St. Moritz. This piece is an unsigned, private reserve piece made especially for our client, and you will never see a piece like this again. Similar pieces have sold at Sotheby's for over $25,000. The earrings measure 1.25" long, and have a unique earring post. The earrings have French-Clip backs, and the posts can be folded down so anyone can wear these earrings, pierced ears or not.
