David Webb Chevron Ring and Victorian Gemstone Jewelry Highlight Thanksgiving Auction by Fine EstateNov 20, 2022 14:00 EST
Better known as a wish bone ring, the chevron finger ring has a characteristic V-shape motif predominant in its design. Dating back to 1800 BCE, the V symbol has been associated with different connotations throughout history. For instance, Roman, Greek, and Spartan warriors would wear these rings as a mark of protection. One such chevron ring by David Webb is a key highlight of the upcoming Thanksgiving auction from Fine Estate. Featuring 26 round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing approximately 1.3 carats, the 18-karat yellow gold and platinum piece is accented by black and white enamel.
A Victorian 14-karat yellow gold jewelry suite also leads the listings. It comprises a festoon-style chain necklace fashioned with six cushion-cut hessonite garnets set in foliate-motif black enamel frames. The suite also includes two detachable pendants designed with pear-shape hessonite garnets and a pair of detachable drop earrings highlighted by one pear-cut hessonite garnet. Another Victorian lot of interest is a star ruby and emerald 14-karat rose gold necklace. It features 56 oval and round star ruby cabochons combined with square and rectangular step-cut emeralds weighing a total of approximately 7.54 carats.
