Somewhere in Sri Lanka, a perfectly formed 28.45 carats sapphire was found. It was formerly known as Ceylon. It was shaped into 18.50 x 17.78 x 9.16 mm jewel for a ring. That Ceylon blue sapphire and platinum ring has made it to the Fall Fine Jewelry Signature Auction by Heritage Auctions. The ring sets the highest estimated value at $150,000.
Jewelry that transcends time, in terms of workmanship, is a hummingbird brooch which features a blister pearl enhanced by full-cut diamonds. The lively style was created in the 5th century. During the medieval period, craftsmen intricately designed brooches with their signature animal style. While traditional jewels make their mark in the sale, modern jewelry such as the Panthère bracelet is equally noticeable.
As the season for jewelry auctions has begun, Heritage is the place to start. With sale of accessories offering 870 alternatives, it offers bidders their pick. Among which is a Mother-of-Pearl Ludo Swann watch created by a French luxury jewelry house- Van Cleef & Arpels. View the catalog and register to bid online on Heritage Auction.
