Henry Dunay was only 14 years old when he first developed a fondness for jewelry design. Intending to pursue his passion, Dunay began to study jewelry design under the apprenticeship of one of New York’s famous jewelers, Rudolph Cacioli. Since then, he has become known for his experimentation with the traditional Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, a concept that embraces imperfection and simplicity. A hammered gold necklace by Dunay is among the key lots of the upcoming Fine Jewelry auction, presented by Doyle. The piece, decorated with asymmetrical designs, is one of his many wabi-sabi influenced works.
Another leading lot is from Hammerman Brothers. In 1946, the three founding brothers came together with an initiative to design and produce high-quality jewelry. Today, the company is among the most noted jewelry manufacturers in the world. Also included in the sale is a Curb Link bracelet-watch from Verdura. The design gained popularity after it was worn by Swedish-American actress Greta Garbo in 1941. The available 18-karat quartz watch features a white dial, sapphire crystal, and two-hand movement. A gold and diamond bracelet designed by Paul Flato is offered as well. The piece is decorated with 97 round diamonds set on buckled interlinks. Those interested in these lots can register to bid on Doyle.
