Gianmaria Buccellati Étoilée Earrings and Kurt Wayne Clip-Brooch Lead Doyle’s Upcoming SaleSep 14, 2023 12:00 EDT
Also known as a gourmette or grumetta chain, a curb necklace is made by twisting metal links to create a fitted interlocking connection. The name is originally derived from a strapping used under a horse’s jaw to keep the curb bit firm and to apply pressure on the chin groove. This curb chain design has become a popular jewelry style statement among women and men. The upcoming Doyle auction will feature one such gold curb link chain necklace. The 18-karat piece measures 35 3/8 inches in length. It is a hollow curb chain with empty space within each link. Another lot of interest is a Gianmaria Buccellati pair of two-toned gold and diamond ‘Étoilée’ earrings fashioned with 18 round diamonds. The famed Étoilée collection was introduced in the 1990s based on Andrea Buccellati’s idea. The design is characterized by four gold-wrought chains intertwined to create rhomboidal shapes. Inside each empty spot is a diamond encased in a Surrealistic fashion.
A striking Kurt Wayne gold, platinum and diamond clip-brooch also leads the listings. It is styled with seven round diamonds, weighing almost 2.15 carats and 76 round diamonds, weighing approximately 8.00 carats.
