The Fine Jewelry Collections Auction presented by Skinner offers contemporary rings, earrings, necklaces, and other jewelry. With estimated values as low as $100, emerging collectors should find one or more lots within their budgets. A pair of “Cassandra” earrings designed by the late Helen Woodhull are among the most eye-catching pieces in the auction. The earrings were made posthumously by an original Woodhull craftsperson using Helen Woodhull’s design. Their unique color comes from garnet juxtaposed against 18 karat gold.
Another pair of earrings with a high estimated value is the 18-karat white gold earrings with South Sea pearls. The pearls are each 11.2 millimeters. For those looking to add a ring to their collection, a 14-karat gold, and a diamond solitaire ring. The diamonds form a triangular shape with the gold intersecting them on both ends, creating a distinct appearance.
For those looking for a more affordable lot, bidding on the 14-karat gold and amethyst ring begins at $100 with an estimated value of $200-$300. The piece’s striking amethyst is 18.00 x 13.70 x 8.90 millimeters. Those interested in any of these pieces can register to bid on Skinner’s website.
