A wonderful antique necklace magnificently worked with leaves and rubies. The central group of leaves is moveable. Polished gold scrolls embrace the gold satin leaves. A necklace in the pure style of the fabulous 50's. Just made for a diva. The color of the rubies is amazing, real "Pigeon Blood". The necklace is still in its original fitted case, signed "Bedetti - Roma". The leaves are wonderfully worked and they just seem as real ones. Only teh goldsmiths of teh past could do a so painstakingly work. This is a very chic necklace, to wear and to be noticed. A lovely piece and a special gift for everyone.
