It’s not every day that you can treat yourself to a historic piece of jewelry that doesn’t look dated, yet retains its antique feel and look. And on those lines, take a look at Paul Flato’s 1938 Ruby, Sapphire, Yellow Diamond, and Enamel Heart Brooch. The 33⁄8 x 23⁄8 x 3⁄8 inch brooch resembles a heart with an arrow piercing through it, with a sapphire banner mounted in platinum and 18-karat yellow gold that reads “verbum carro” written in yellow gold. The heart is made with 134 round and oval rubies “interspersed with red enamel beads”, with an arrow set with 29 calibré-cut yellow diamonds, while the banner sports 39 calibré-cut sapphires.
Although Flato shut shop in 1943, his jewelry is quite a rage even to this day. Prices are not mentioned, but will be disclosed to interested buyers.
