American jewelry designer Henry Dunay wanted to create jewelry pieces to set him apart from his competition. Dunay’s craftsmanship led to the creation of curved jewelry pieces designed with a distinct style. It was the Sabi finished jewelry and timepieces with hand-etched lines that led to his firm’s success. The highlighted Henry Dunay lady’s diamond and gold Sabi watch is inspired by wabi-sabi, a Japanese aesthetic that accepts imperfections in beautiful things. The upcoming Friday Night Jewels Internet Auction presented by Heritage Auctions also offers a GIA-certified brilliant-cut diamond and platinum ring.
A featured gold jewelry suite by goldsmith Ilias Lalaounis is an example of his Greek-inspired pieces. Jewelry by Tiffany &Co.,Van Cleef & Arpels, Di Modolo, Charles Krypell, and timepieces by Rolex and Bulgari will also be a part of the auction. Decorative art items like a 24-karat gold and brass hourglass by De Beers are also notable. The hourglass contains 2,000 rough-cut diamonds floating in a silicon-based fluid. Collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online on Heritage Auctions.
