Theme: four leaf clover - The clover became famous around 1,600 years ago, because, it was said that Saint Patrick in 452 AD stepped from the cathedral in Ireland on Easter morning, stooped down and picked a shamrock. He showed it to the crowd of parishioners, and then said, "This Plant represents the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!" Since that time, the three leaf shamrock has become world famous! Around this time when clovers were made popular, the rare four-leaf clover also became popular and was considered to be lucky.
Material: 18K yellow gold

Extra information: Sterlé - Pierre Sterlé established himself as a jeweller in 1934 and with premises in the Avenue de L’Opera from 1945, he created models with a truly amazing sense of movement. The so-called 'chain knit' is said to be his invention.
Diamonds: Three semi-modern brilliant cut diamonds with a total estimated weight of approx. 0.28 crt. Their cut is semi-modern as the stones are polished around 1950 which means that although to today's standards they are considered to be modern brilliant cuts, their cullet (the point at the bottom) are still polished flat.
Note: All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
Birthstones: Diamond is the birthstone (or month stone) for April.
