Jewels that stand the test of time are typically characterized by great stones or great design. The New York sale of Magnificent Jewels this April features many such jewels, including an array of white diamonds and period Cartier designs offered from a distinguished family collection.
Collectors will find top quality precious gemstones of every color including an exceptional Colombian emerald mounted by Harry Winston, a beautiful Burma ruby set in a 1920’s Chaumet brooch, and a lively Burma sapphire certified “royal blue”. Complementing such remarkable gems, the sale this April also features beautiful signed jewels made by leading jewelry designers both past and present. On the catalogue cover we showcase an elegant pair of diamond, sapphire and emerald hoop earclips by JAR, the most creative jeweler working today. Another highlight is a Modernist bangle-bracelet/clip made by Raymond Templier in the mid-1930s that is equally stunning and innovative.
