In 1822, Howard Carter and his team discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamen and all the treasures that lay inside. This discovery prompted a new interest in Egyptian jewelry. Brands such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels began making Egyptian-style pieces, also known as Egyptian revival jewelry. An Art Nouveau Egyptian revival brooch from 1890 is featured in the upcoming Fine Jewelry auction, offered by Doyle. Made of 18-karat gold, the figural brooch features both bird and floral motifs and five old European and single-cut diamonds.
With over 150 lots, this sale also includes jewelry by Bulgari, Cartier, and Hermès. A Monete curb link chain necklace by Bulgari is among the key lots. Launched in the 1980s, the brand incorporated antique Greek coins into their Monete jewelry. It remains one of Bulgari’s most enduring and popular lines. The curb link chain has a central bronzed ancient coin surrounded by round diamonds. Also included is a Hermès “Chaine d’Ancre” bracelet. Created by Robert Dumas in 1938, the design is inspired by an anchor chain. Browse the complete catalog and register to bid for these items on Doyle.
