There are numerous pieces of elegance and beauty in this sale, but these are matched by equal parts creativity and eccentricity.
Luxury rings take on unexpected shapes, covering a cube in pearls and suspending a gem midair. Modernist jewelry and sculpture take on new life in this sale, with unexpected protrusions and playful distortions abound.
