What started as a fancy goods shop in 1838 is today one of the world’s most recognized jewelry houses. Tiffany & Co., founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and his business partner J. B. Young, chose a prime spot along Broadway for their store. Tiffany and Young became known for the purity of their jewels and British standard silver. A platinum Tiffany & Co. ring centering a 5.13-carat oval-cut diamond with D color and VS2 clarity is a top lot in Freeman’s upcoming auction. The center diamond is flanked by two near colorless tapered baguette-cut diamonds with SI clarity. The total estimated weight of the diamonds is 5.96 carats. The ring comes with a GIA certificate.
Another brand name synonymous with luxury gifts is Van Cleef & Arpels. A shared sense of family loyalty, innovation, and a love of jewelry brought Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef together in 1895. This collaboration led to numerous innovative pieces of jewelry. A Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet designed as invisibly set calibré-cut sapphires mounted in 18-karat gold is also a notable lot in the auction. The sapphire rows are separated by platinum stations set with round brilliant-cut diamonds with G – H colors and VS clarity. The diamonds together weigh 1.35 carats. The sale also offers a Bulgari Tubogas Serpenti watch, Rolex Red Submariner men’s watch, and other vintage watches. Find the listed items and more on Freeman’s and register to place a bid.
