Natalie also commented on the sapphire’s sleepy blue hue for which the stone is best known. She says, “Demand for these rare beauties is strong.”

This Georgian bracelet made Natalie’s list because of its handcrafted design using goldsmith techniques such as repoussé. She loves the attention to detail and calls it “a fine example of 19th century jewelry.”

Calling it a “great day-to-night statement piece,” Natalie picked this ring for its rose-cut diamonds.

Explaining the technique behind her final pick, Natalie says, “In the early 20th century, jewelers were just beginning to experiment with this new white metal, platinum. At first weary of its strength, often plating it with gold backings, jewelers soon came to realize the metal’s incredible strength and used it to create finely detailed jewels that would define the Belle Epoque and Edwardian period.”
