Beyond the obvious beauty of diamonds is the more subtle beauty of style, which is what sets any piece of jewelry apart. Thoughtful construction and bold stylistic statements comprise the bulk of Skinner’s upcoming Important Jewelry Auction, bringing together antique, period, and contemporary pieces. Almost 200 bracelets, earrings, necklaces, brooches, rings, and more will be available in this sale.
One of the finest pieces, vintage in design and dazzling in appearance is a Cartier sapphire and diamond ring. This ring was crafted in the 1950s with Kashmir sapphires in an eye-catching symmetry. A diamond sunburst brooch is also striking, heavy with both tiny stones and a glamorous history: the piece originally belonged to Mrs. Hope Goddard Iselin, an avid sportswoman and social figure of the Gilded Age.
Whether you’re looking for an autumnal wardrobe item or a piece of wearable modern art, this auction will hold options for you. An Etruscan Revival grapevine necklace displays both power and delicacy in its careful details, while an 18 karat gold brooch from Georg Jensen presents sleek, modern elegance. Whatever your style, this diverse auction will give you a multitude of options and opportunities. To view the full catalog and register to bid, visit Bidsquare.
