Flappers Favorites- Art Deco & Fred Leighton jewelry lead Auction XXXII by IntervendueMay 17, 2022 14:00 EDT
A 19.56-carat diamond Art Deco ring will set the pace for May the Jewels Be With You. An auction by Intervendue is to take place this May. The ring weighs 9.6 grams overall and comes with an EGL certificate. The old-mine cushion-cut diamond with M color and SI3 clarity. The charm of the Art Deco engagement rings as this one remains after a century. Back in the 1920s and 1930s, the era of The Great Gatsby and Chicago, Art Deco jewelry gained popularity because it made a big impression, both in size and shape. Diamonds were big and mostly paired with sapphires, emeralds, and rubies in shiny platinum. A ring like this lends a sense of timeless elegance of that era.
Continuing with the Flappers’ favorites is a Fred Leighton diamond, flower earrings. It is an 18K yellow gold earring with fancy intense natural yellow diamonds weighing around 21.00 Ct. The diamonds have VS1 to SI1 Clarity. Fred Leighton is a name associated with style icons like Josephine Baker, Diana Vreeland, Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot, and Jackie Onassis. He started as a proprietor of a bohemian clothing store in 1960s Greenwich Village. From there, he went on to create jewelry that brought history and its most colorful characters from Jane Austen heroines to the Fitzgerald flappers to the Golden Age actresses, to life. Leighton jewelry is limited edition or one-of-a-kind. Jewelry connoisseurs can find a variety of rings, earrings, cuffs, bracelets, necklaces, watches and more in Auction XXXII by Intervendue.
