According to an ancient Colombian legend, the tears of two banished lovers were transformed into emeralds after their love was tested. Today, two twin peaks representing the lovers mark the entrance to the Minero River valley. Colombia’s emerald-producing mines lie beyond these cliffs. An 18-karat white gold ring featuring a 5.0-carat Colombian emerald is one of the leading lots in the upcoming Fine Jewelry, Luxury Accessories, Sterling Silver, Coins & Currency auction, offered by Alex Cooper Auctioneers. Two diamonds flank the ring’s central emerald. Another highlight is a platinum filigree piece with old European-cut diamonds. The bar on the back allows it to be worn as a pendant or a pin.
The auction also showcases a handmade Italian Byzantine link chain and a diamond mesh necklace. Both lots formerly belonged to an opera singer’s private collection. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
