In need of a little hump day lift? These 1950s Bulgari ‘door knocker’ style earrings ought to do the trick, the very essence of ‘la dolce vita’! ✨ Did you know - when Sotirio Bulgari opened his store on the Via dei Condotti in Rome at the beginning of the 20th century he called it the ‘Old Curiosity Shop’. Taken from the novel by Dickens, it was a shrewd attempt to attract the English and American tourists who flocked to Rome.
You just have to love a lovely antique pear shape diamond. Bucking the trend for most antique diamonds, these old cut diamonds usually spread larger than their modern counterparts. They’re magical stones.
New arrival! 🎉  This wonderful vintage gold dress ring by Georg Jensen c.1960 was designed by renowned designers Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel. The ring has a distinctive asymmetrical form with a wide curved ridge to the front, one end pointed and the other rounded, tapering smoothly down to the band at the back. It has a strong sculptural quality to it and can be worn with the point facing either up or down with the highly polished gold creating a beautifully reflective finish.
For the love of Lenfant!  This beautiful gold, ruby and diamond bracelet was made by Georges Lenfant c.1965. It’s designed as a straight strap of matte textured 18ct yellow gold edged with polished gold ‘stiches’ and applied around the centre with six ruby and diamond flowerhead clusters. The matte gold is offset by the polished edges and the ruby clusters add some colour and sparkle whilst not detracting from the texture and finish of the gold work which is of course, what we know and love Lenfant for.
A little video this afternoon to show off the beautiful bluish adularescence in our moonstone ring. The fine quality moonstone weighs 16.64cts and is carved with the figure of Apollo, it is set within a surround of old European brilliant cut diamonds with bullet-cut diamond shoulders, all to a handmade platinum mount.
Sometimes one just doesn’t cut the mustard so five should do it. Five lovely old European brilliant cut diamonds doing what they do best.
A beautiful cushion shaped rose cut diamond like this deserved only the very prettiest of settings. So we surrounded her with a halo of round brilliant diamonds set with a delicate millegrain edge, scattered diamonds down her shoulders and hand engraved her mount with ornate scrollwork motifs. I hope you’ll agree she’s an absolute beauty!
This is a beautiful transitional cut diamond which is special in its own right, but the detail of the ring really sets it off.
It’s the first weekend of another lockdown here in London so just in case any one else feels in need of a little sparkly lift I thought I’d share this dazzling Victorian beauty. ✨❤️✨
This is such an elegant sapphire and diamond dress set by Boucheron. From c. 1925, it comprises a pair of double ended chain link cufflinks, four buttons and three studs all finely crafted in platinum, each round face set with rows of calibre-cut buff top sapphires and centred with four square step-cut diamonds set together in a square shape.
The diamond at the centre of this ring is a beautiful antique triangular brilliant cut diamond. One of the beauties of these antique diamonds is that they don’t conform to any particular pre-defined specification and shape and are often completely unique. We have set this one within a sapphire border and scrolled shoulders. A beautiful cocktail ring or a truly unique engagement ring.
