This collection of fine jewelry was carefully curated by an adoring husband, for his wife, over the course of their 47 years of marriage. Each shopping trip required the personal assistance of one of their three daughters, a special and highly coveted assignment; each jewel was, in their eyes, the perfect gift. To mark a special occasion or to celebrate the everyday, these fine pieces were joyously given, thoroughly enjoyed, and carry a legacy of love.
Good estate condition; two diamonds with chips visible under 10x magnification.
