Carved and polished to perfection, this exquisite French bowenite box is accentuated by 17 beautiful blue cabochon sapphires and mounted in 18K yellow gold. Bowenite has a storied history in the decorative arts. The Māori of New Zealand has used the semi-precious stone for everything from jewelry to weapons for hundreds of years. With its elegant translucency and colors ranging from pale yellow to vivid green, bowenite has been utilized by some of the most respected firms in modern time, including Chopard, Tiffany & Co. and Fabergé, to craft exquisite objets d'art, such as this box. Accompanying this beautiful box is its original fitted leather case.
