Space Age

Elegant vintage bracelet with untreated sapphires & diamonds, around 1970

Jewellery fashion is subject to constant change. After the organic forms of the fifties, a new desire for geometry returned in the age of the race to the moon, and yellow gold and combinations of colorful colored stones were also increasingly displaced by white gold, diamonds and cool blue sapphires. The filigree structures of space equipment, the antennas of Sputnik, but also the skeletal structures of the new skyscrapers may have been the inspiration here. It was not for nothing that a brooch with the name "Cosmos" won the prize for Jewel of the Year in 1967. This bracelet is also an exemplary jewel of those years, combining the modernity of its design with the highest quality materials. Five natural sapphires of a combined 6.30 ct are at the heart of the design. These are untreated stones whose mild blue color and striking clarity have arisen naturally. Held in restrained white gold settings, they are accented only by small brilliant-cut diamonds that further enhance the blue color of the sapphires. A simple, yet intricately detailed bracelet joins the gem-set showpiece. Thanks to the multitude of its links, it is very flexible and nestles ideally around the wrist. Also made of white gold, it blends in with the cool and luxurious colour scheme of blue and white that defines the piece of jewellery. The bracelet comes with an independent gemmological certificate confirming the quality of the materials used.
