Van Cleef & Arpels Paris Late-20th Century Diamond Sapphire and Platinum ''Camilia'' Earrings

A pair of Mid-20th Century platinum "Camélia" earrings with diamonds and blue sapphires by Van Cleef & Arpels. The camellia flower earrings set with 36 sapphires, approximate total weight of 3.60 carats, and 86 round diamonds with an approximate total weight of 3.90 carats, F-G color, VVS-VS clarity. Made in France, sold at Van Cleef & Arpels, New York. These striking flower earrings with highly three dimensional shaping are a modern interpretation of the iconic Asian flower which had so captured the European imagination in the 20th century, According to Évelyne Possémé, head curator at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, "At the same time as the Indian influence, a rather more classical vein was still found in earrings such as the Camellia clips, leaves composed of bead and prong-set rubies (and sapphires) and diamonds," Earclips of the same design as these, with rubies and diamonds, are pictured in Van Cleef & Arpels: L''Art De La Haute Joaillerie, by Évelyne Possémé, Les Arts Decoratifs, 2013, page 187. The French love affair with the camellia was sparked around 1800, when Empress Josephine Bonaparte began cultivating them in her palace garden at Malmaison. The conspicuous, opulent flower was quickly adopted by French fashionistas as a corsage ornament signifying love. More than the Empress herself, however, the passionate aficionado of the camellia was the romanti ... c and mysterious Parisian courtesan Marie Du Plessis. While still in her late teens, Du Plessis was widely regarded a woman of beauty, intelligence, and wit. Self educated in literature and philosophy, discreet and private by nature, "La Dame aux Camélias" inspired Alexandre Dumas fils, Franz Liszt, and sundry aristocrats to throw themselves at her feet, and she gathered one of the great intellectual salons of the day at her home in Paris. When she died at just 23 years old, her history was immediately altered by Dumas to fit the old narrative of the fallen woman who redeems herself through self-sacrificing love for a younger man. A recent biographer, delving into the facts of Du Plessis'' brief, exceptional life, demolished most of Dumas'' fictions, but apparently her obsession with the extravagant flower was all too real: an intriguing file of Du Plessis'' rediscovered papers includes "numerous eye-popping bills" from the luxury Parisian florist who satisfied her boundless passion for red and white camellias.

Estate Aquamarine, Sapphire, Diamond and Gold Earrings

A pair of American Estate 18 karat yellow and white gold earrings with aquamarines, sapphires and diamonds by Zwikker & Zacher. These earrings have 4 oval aquamarines with an approximate total weight of 34.00 carats, 28 oval sapphires with an approximate total weight of 10.00 carats, and 34 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .68 carats. Detachable drops. With original box. Beloved as the birthstone for the month of March, the name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word for sea water. Known and treasured since before modern times, the 1st Century A.D. historian and philosopher Pliny the Elder wrote of the stone, "the lovely aquamarine, which seems to have come from some mermaid''s treasure house, in the depths of a summer sea, has charms not to be denied." Roman legend had it that the stone absorbed and preserved young love, and was the most popular stone for marriage and morning gifts. (A morning gift is an object presented to the bride by her groom the morning after their wedding.) In fact, this custom may well be the origin of the "something blue" that is traditionally presented to a bride before her nuptials. The stone was also believed to protect travelers, particularly sailors, and is often associated with the far-traveling St. Thomas the Apostle. From ancient through Medieval times aquamarine was the preferred stone for the making of fortune-tell ... ing crystal balls for its supposed "divining power," and similarly used as an antidote to eye illnesses for the same reason. This particular piece exemplifies the beauty of blue aquamarine, especially with its stunning blue sapphire and diamond accents.
