This is a really fun set – and seasonally appropriate. I can look at this and see frosted leaves and holly berries or fireworks.
Fireworks are what the designer, James W. Curren (for Faidee) intended people to see when they looked at this necklace and earrings. And it’s jewelry worth of fireworks. The necklace alone contains 20 cabochon rubies, totaling 108.13 carats, and 56.80 carats of pear-shaped and brilliant cut diamonds.
The earrings add an additional 27.39 carats of rubies and 7.00 of diamonds. Not too shabby.
This set was listed in Sotheby’s 09 October 2012 Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite sale. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
