The upcoming Fine Jewelry auction, presented by Doyle, offers over 800 lots of jewelry, watches, and more by Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co., Cartier, David Webb, Rolex, Patek Philippe, and others. Particularly featured is a luxury handbag collection from the estate of animal rights advocate Mary Max. Inspired by a conversation with actress Isabella Rosellini, the New York-born activist dedicated herself to animal rights. She co-founded Humane USA-PAC, a national political action committee that supports animal rights legislation. Among the highlights of her collection is a Christian Dior La Terre tote bag and a limited edition Louis Vuitton tropical print Petite Malle bag.
Among the available jewelry pieces, a Schlumberger-designed blue paillonné-enamel and diamond bracelet is highlighted. Jackie Kennedy, the former First Lady of the United States, wore so many of Schlumberger’s enamel bracelets that the press dubbed them ‘Jackie bracelets.’ Another lot of interest is a Patek Philippe Ellipse wristwatch. Launched in 1968, the Ellipse has a minimalistic design. The elliptical form is based on the golden section, a ratio discovered more than two thousand years ago. The available piece is fitted with a deep royal blue dial and diamond-set markers. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Doyle.
