Mrs Samuel’s Ring, Sapphire and Diamond
An extremely limited edition ring, designed by Catbird using antique blue sapphires from the collection of Vito Giallo — 92 year old artist, antiques dealer, and quintessential New Yorker.
Mrs. Samuel was an elderly Hungarian woman and Vito’s father’s landlord in New York City — while Vito was in art school, he lived in Mrs. Samuel’s apartment near Riverside Drive, and they became good friends.
Made in our Brooklyn studio using 100% recycled gold and recycled diamonds.
In honor of our collaboration with Vito, the Catbird Giving Fund is proud to make a donation of $30,000 to SAGE, a national advocacy and services organization in their mission to look out for LGBTQ+ elders.
Please note, these gems contain natural inclusions and imperfections which are consistent with their age and provenance. Each one was chosen by the Catbird team for their heritage and beauty.
