Pink Saturday - November 19

Happy Pink Saturday. Thank you to Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting our weekly pink meetings.

The epic jewellery collection that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor will be auctioned in December.

Because of my magpie obsession with all things sparkly, I will be featuring several pieces of the jewellery over the next couple weeks.

My Pink Saturday offering is

The "Triphanes" Sautoir was made by Van Cleef & Arpels.

A detachable pendant with an oval cut kunzite sits within a circular cut diamond setting. This sits in an amethyst bead frame with kunzite and diamond detail. Mounted in 18kt gold it is 27 inches. The necklace can be shortened to 19 inches or 16 inches and a detachable segment can be worn as a bracelet.

It is estimated it will sell for $70,000 to $100,000.

Can't afford that? How about a matching pair of earrings?
These are estimated to fetch $15,000 -$20,000.

Come back on Monday for another spectacular piece from Elizabeth Taylor's collection.
