The auction Fine Jewelry and Watches by Hampton Estate Auction displays over 450 pieces of wearable art. It is a wonderful opportunity to add color and variety to one’s accessory rotation with splashy yellow diamond and pink sapphire pieces. Especially, since rainbow-hued jewelry continues to make a fashion comeback.
The collection is also notable for its uniquely shaped jewelry, as constellations of diamonds form a brooch, rings take organic forms, and gold twist to form a thorny setting. It is the inclusion of these objects alongside unusual antiques like an enchanting Victorian purple heart pendant and a piece containing elk’s teeth that elevates the auction into a cleverly curated jewelry selection.
Showcased items consist of an impressive platinum and diamond star sapphire ring and a multi-color diamond brooch. Icy white diamonds are included in a vintage platinum Omega watch decorated, and several splendid bracelets, earrings, and rings. In fact rings make up a good portion of the auction, with over 250 lots. Rounding out the collection are six charming cameos, translucent shell carvings encased in gold. And there is plenty of freedom to play with as bids range from $10-$6,000. For bidding, registration and the complete auction catalogue, visti Bidsquare.
