At a recent Beverly Hills jewelry auction, I arrived in search of sweet deals on vintage gems. What I got was a front row seat for one of the most ridiculous bidding wars I’ve ever witnessed. There were no bargains to be found and it quickly became clear that the best strategy was to sit on my hands. Otherwise I would have paid way too much for a ruby and diamond bracelet that (briefly) belonged to a 1930s bombshell.
Instead of paying six figures for secondhand stones, I placed a winning bid without spending a dollar. One of the superstars of that auction inspired this Ruby & DiamondAura® Beverly Bracelet. Designers expertly recreated the Art Deco decadence of the original, using a genuine emerald-cut ruby centerpiece set in .925 sterling silver. The brilliant, lab-created DiamondAura rounds add the finishing touch. The 7 ½” bracelet secures with a sterling silver box clasp. We’ve managed to capture all of the Hollywood magic without the Hollywood budget!
