Black Rutile faceted briolette - nesbee - nesbee

Tiffany celebrates nature's patterns of intricate beauty with tender vines of 355 round and marquise diamonds that form a winding path through 441 perfectly matched sapphires. In fact, the exquisite stones began their journey long before, at the stonecutter's bench. In a feat of skill and precision, Tiffany stonecutters painstakingly cut each diamond that was then bead set in platinum, and hand carved each sapphire to fit the complex channel setting. The result captures the graceful movement of vines blooming against a midnight sky. $195,000 (ouch!) at Tiffany & Co.
