The BaselWorld show will be happening later this month in Switzerland. And while it's primarily known as the place for high-end watches, they won't be the only pieces to shine.
According to National Jeweler today, "Siegelson, a New York-based purveyor of high-end and rare jewelry, has announced that it will be selling an iconic piece of 20th century American jewelry at the show: a circa 1935 aquamarine and ruby belt necklace designed by the late Paul Flato, the celebrity jeweler of the 1930s and 1940s who counted Hollywood legends such as Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich and Vivien Leigh among his clientele."
The beautiful belt necklace has graced many necks, including Linda Porter (legend Cole Porter's wife). It also inspired designer Karl Lagerfeld to create a similar belt necklace for "his 2011 Chanel Paris-Byzance Collection, Marie Claire France reports."
Since aquamarine is the birthstone for March, if you're looking for a unique aquamarine gift (and money is no object) you might want to check out the Flato belt necklace auction in Basel later this month.
