This remarkable example, designed as ivy set with round cut tsavorite garnets, is unsigned but is believed to by jeweler to the stars, Fred Leighton.
Bracelets are another key category in this sale, with around 30 great selections on offer. It’s easy being green with lot #323, a gorgeous malachite bracelet, estimated at $1,200-1,800.
