Edwardian Diamond and Pearl Piece & Other Retro Jewelry Leads Hindman’s Upcoming SaleMay 16, 2023 10:00 CDT
An American jeweler, Marcus & Co. was known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco jewelry of the highest quality and exquisite designs. The pieces created by Marcus & Co were inspired by contemporary trends in art, despite their unique style. A hallmark of its line of jewelry was plique-à-jour enamel pieces designed in the Art Nouveau style, as well as diamond jewelry. An Edwardian diamond and pearl brooch from this jeweler is a key highlight of the upcoming Important Jewelry sale from Hindman. The piece is set with old mine and old European cut diamonds, along with pearls. The catalog also highlights a French diamond and gemstone portrait miniature brooch. This piece of jewelry features a rose-cut diamond portrait plaque of a classical profile, encircled by diamonds, rubies, and pearls.
Another notable lot in the sale is an Edwardian pendant and a diamond watch by Patek Philippe. Watches with elaborately decorated pendants were very fashionable during the early 20th century. Wearable as necklaces or lapel pins, these pieces signified status, including those from Patek Philippe. The watch has a blue guilloche enamel back over a platinum foliate decoration case, accompanied by a platinum chain with rose-cut diamond laurel wreaths. Collectors can explore the full catalog on Hindman’s website and register to bid in the Important Jewelry sale.
