Sometimes, as a dealer in vintage and antique jewels, you run into a piece that will change your life forever. One that’s just that amazing. This Koi brooch is one of those pieces.
Where to start? Let’s begin with the amazing rubies, diamonds and sapphires. They’re all of top notch quality. Then there’s the craftsmanship. It’s just a beautifully made piece. And then. . . then there’s the mystery. This brooch is a dead ringer for one created by Jean Slumberger for Tiffany & Co. Except that this one is unsigned. It’s had us in a tizzy for days just trying to figure it out. Since it’s not signed, we can’t be sure, so we’ve priced it as an unsigned piece (if it was signed it would appraise at about $25,000!). If you’re a Slumberger fan but don’t want to pay Slumberger prices – have we got a deal for you.
Now the stats: it tests at 18kt yellow and white gold, it’s 13.9dwt with 1.0cts total weight of diamonds (VS/G), 1.40cts total weight of rubies (top grade) and sapphire eyes. A true knockout!
**The brooch will ship USPS Priority Mail (in the US). Should you wish for additional shipping insurance to cover the full value of the piece (USPS only offers $100 worth of insurance), please message us prior to purchase.
