Description:

Pair of 18kt Gold Gem-set Songbird Brooches, Jean Vitau, each set with circular-cut colored stones including rubies and sapphires, 15.0 dwt, lg. 1 in., signed.
Estimate $2,000-3,000

Overall very good condition. Due to limitations of the pave settings an RI was not obtainable on the green stones, in our opintion they are peridot. Colored stones well matched, eye clean. Only ruby and sapphire pin has a pendant loop.
