This beautiful ruby/diamond brooch was created by Igor Carl Faberge, the grandson to the great Peter Carl Faberge, it is made of 18k gold and is set with 27 separate rubies and 5 full-cut diamonds that glisten like dewdrops on the leaves. There were only 1,500 of these elegant pieces made and sold through-out the world by The Franklin Mint in 1980. After this the Faberge Rose Brooch was withdrawn and nver again made available. this lovely piece of jewlery is 35mm tall x 25mm wide x 10mm deep and weighs 6.5 grams. This particular piece has never been worn and comes in its original red velvet box with description papers. I am asking $1,500 or will consider an offer or will trade for earrings, bracelet or ring of equal value.
