jewelled creation set with over 500 diamonds and pink sapphires,

Valentine’s Day in 2010.
This symbolic masterpiece, which is a tribute to love and
femininity, features white and pink mother-of-pearl dial in the shape
of a heart and is framed by a bezel set with over 500 diamonds and
pink sapphires. A heart-cut diamond also appears at 12 o’clock,
