Doyle Showcases Luxury Jewelry by Cartier, Masriera, Van Cleef & Arpels, David Webb, and MoreMar 25, 2021 12:00 EDT
Luxury jewelry from three estates will hit the auction block this March at Doyle. Leading the catalog is an Art Nouveau pendant-brooch from Masriera. Born in Barcelona to a family of jewelers, Lluís Masriera was inspired by the Exposition Universelle in Paris, especially the presented Lalique jewels. Soon, he took the reins as the artistic director of his family jewelry business. Masriera aimed to bring the Art Nouveau aesthetic to Barcelona and lead Spain towards Modernism. He started creating Art Nouveau jewelry pieces celebrating female forms and nature. His creations, full of flowing lines and curves, often borrowed motifs from nature. The available lot, an 18-karat plique-à-jour enamel pendant-brooch, shows a woman in a sitting posture, wearing a long dress and holding a diamond.
The upcoming auction includes several watches by Cartier and Chopard. A Chopard Imperiale chronograph wristwatch is among the key lots. Launched in 1994, the Imperiale collection draws inspiration from ancient empires. The available 18-karat gold and diamond watch has a white circular dial with diamond markers, a black crocodile strap, and a gold buckle.
