Bruno Guidi 18 Karat Gold Aquamarine and Diamond Pendant Brooch
$29,500.00Ask a question
Thanks for taking a look at this fabulous Bruno Guidi Aquamarine and Diamond Pendant Brooch. This stone came from Burle Marx, but it windowed, so we had to have it recut. It is the finest Aqua we've ever had, and trust me we've had many aquas over the years. It is 24.03 carats, surrounded by 41 diamonds totaling 1.20 carats. A stone this fine would easily sell for $1000 per carat or more. (Bruno Guidi was Burle Marxs' Goldsmith for 35 years.)
If you own a piece of Burle Marx Jewelry, there's a very good chance it originally came from us. The ALTOMAR Collection, located in the famed Watergate Hotel had world rights to Burle Marx Jewelry for the last decade of his life until his death in 1991. Today, we have access to the largest collection of unsold Burle Marx pieces in the world.
Burle Marx is without question one the greatest jewelry designers that ever lived. His customer list looks much like a social registry. Cicely Tyson, Madame Ferragamo, Placido Domingo, Natalie Wood, The Shah of Iran, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, and the Empress of Japan were just a few of his customers. In 1989 over half a million dollars worth of Burle Marx jewels were on display at The Houston Museum of Natural Science for a period of two years. Burle Marx was featured in Connoisseur Magazine, Town and Country, Vogue, U.S. News & World Report, and The New York Times.
