From a Palm Beach, Florida Estate

From the collection of an elegant, Southern lady, who loved to travel and appreciated beauty in all its manifestations.  In particular, she had a passion for exquisite jewelry – a passion that she shared with her husband of 67 years.  Over the course of their marriage, they built this collection, together; it represents a life well lived – full of shared love, interests, and adventure. 

Several rubies with chips and abrasions and one with a surface reaching fracture visible under 10x magnification; otherwise, good estate condition.
