Rare Natural Mauve Colored Pearl Diamond RingRegular price $ 9,500.00
Apparently this is one of the rarest Pearls in the World which I did not know when I bought it, having never seen or owned one before. The Pearls of this unusual colour are found only in the Lions Paw Scallop (Mano de Leon) in the coastal waters of Baja California, Mexico. This little beauty has been set in an unmarked White Gold mount with 4 stone Diamond shoulders and as far as I can judge, was created in the 1930's. Condition: Good

Tiffany & Co. Fine Carved Coral Gold RingRegular price $ 5,500.00
This is an extraordinary design and I have no idea of the influences which contributed to the creation of this amazing Ring. Suggestions have been Russia, India and Burma but only Tiffany archives would know. The Tiffany and 18k marks are well hidden underneath the bezel on either side, almost as if they did not want anyone to know that they made the Ring. Perhaps it was a special order!
