Jewel of the day: Verdura heart

I have always loved this heart made of cabochon rubies and wrapped with diamond ribbons by Fulco de Verdura. He began his career making jewelry for Coco Chanel and designed the Maltese cross cuffs she is well known for. The heart was first made in 1941 and I believe remains available. Though Verdura died in 1978, his designs can be purchased at the company’s boutique in NY. Bring a lot of money or your Amex black card.
