Engagement rings were originally worn by Roman wives to signify their husbands’ ownership. The trend of presenting a prospective bride with a diamond ring as a symbol of love evolved much later. In 1477, the Archduke Maximillian of Austria commissioned one for his bride, the first recorded use of diamonds in an engagement ring. A more contemporary diamond and platinum engagement ring by Tiffany & Co. will be offered in the upcoming Estate Jewelry, Art, & Collectibles auction, presented by Kodner Galleries. It features a 4.30-carat square-cut diamond of VS1 clarity.
Also highlighted in the event is a 2000 model of the Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5066/1. The 18-karat yellow gold bracelet watch features an automatic self-winding movement. The first Aquanaut launched as a 1,000-piece limited edition in 1997. Several other pieces of jewelry, fine art, and decorative art will also cross the auction block, as well as paintings by Le Pho, Salvador Dalí, and Erté.
