    SRI LANKAN SAPPHIRE BRACELET AT JAMES ADAM

    Monday, May 14th, 2018

    This Sri Lankan sapphire and diamond bracelet, designed in the 1950’s, epitomizes the style of its era. Following a period of austerity which accompanied the war, the 1950’s heralded a decade of welcome prosperity. From a private Irish collection and estimated at 60,000-80,000 it is the main highlight of the evening jewellery sale at James Adam in Dublin on May 15.

    Mounted in platinum and gold the bracelet is set with seven cushion-shaped sapphires weighing approximately 45 carats, joined by articulated segments of geometric design with old cushion, round and baguette-cut diamonds weighing around 25 carats.  Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, is home to an abundance of gemstones of superior quality and is sometimes referred to as the island of jewels.  The auction offers 247 lots of  contemporary and period jewellery and the catalogue is online.

    UPDATE: THIS MADE 53,000 AT HAMMER
