PINK JEWEL BOX
Golden branches strewn with fragrant blooms, entice an array of winged creatures to the magnificent egg.
A glittering pink jeweled bird with a long trailing tail alights for a moment. Nearby, a tiny silver bird tends her precious pearl eggs in their green enamel nest while a butterfly and honey bees dart among flowers sprinkled with gems and pearls.
At the pinnacle, golden twigs balance a pink bloom blushed with gold as it unfolds to reveal a brilliant jeweled center, attracting a single golden honey bee.
Resting elegantly on a carved Carrara marble pillar, the silver-leafed and pink enamel egg is richly wreathed with laurel leaves, pavé-set with brilliants.
The elegant clasp, composed of golden ribbon tied in a bow, is set with a dazzling emerald-green 3-carat jewel surrounded by brilliants. The slightly opened jewel box reveals an intriguing glimpse of undulating gold, suggesting the surprise hidden inside.
Opening the egg reveals a fuchsia stiletto balanced on a spiraled gold stage. The toe displays an intricate Venetian carnivàle mask.
Balanced on top of the heel is the raison d'etre for creating the PINK Jewel Box: an exquisite pink 12-carat pear-shaped solitaire ring. A gift for a friend who adores pink.
