Purchased quite recently from a Zurich jeweller/gemologist.
What a beautiful piece of timeless jewelry. Again there is hardly anything else to add to the description, The seller knows his business. I couldn´t figure out who made the jewelry. The monogram most likely reads "SA or AS in an octagon", possibly late 20th century. I compared current auction results for the estimate. Asking prices an pre-auction estimates might be higher.
