Founded in 1780 by Marie-Étienne Nitot, the House of Chaumet is a Paris-based luxury jewelry and watchmaking firm that saw success after the French Revolution in 1789. It went on to become the official jewelry designer of Napoleon I. A ruby and diamond bracelet, crafted by Chaumet, is one of the leading lots in the upcoming Important Jewels auction. The bracelet is set with oval-shaped rubies, weighing a total of 6.25 carats. Emerald-, pear-, and brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing around 25 carats, are also placed on this piece.
Another key lot in this Fortuna Auction event is a princess-cut diamond ring crafted in platinum. Set with a 3.42-carat rectangular modified brilliant-cut diamond, it is flanked by two emerald-cut stones. The cut appears square-shaped when viewed from above but looks like an inverted pyramid from the sides. The princess cut, which is popularly used in engagement rings, was created by Betazel Ambar and Israel Itzkowitz in 1980.
A tennis bracelet, crafted in 18-karat gold and set with radiant-cut diamonds, is another highlight of the sale. Owing to their lightweight and flexible form, tennis or eternity bracelets are especially popular among sportswomen. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
