Rolex introduced the Submariner wristwatch in 1954. However, it was not until 1967 that the style became popular. Highlighted at the upcoming Jewels and Unreserved auction, offered by Rago, is a Rolex Submariner Oyster Perpetual wristwatch with a black dial.
Another lot of interest is a diamond and platinum engagement ring. During the Edwardian era, platinum became widely available, making it the metal of choice in engagement rings. Also among the notable jewelry pieces is an Art Nouveau enamel and freshwater pearl necklace by Janvier Quercia. An Italian jeweler, Janvier Quercia was considered a leader in jewelry design during the early 20th century. He incorporated a variety of materials in his works, including gold, semi-precious stones, and enamel.
George W. Shiebler and Company was a firm that produced artistic jewelry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum inspired their oxidized silver and transparent enamel medallion items. This sale features a pair of the company’s silver medallion bracelets depicting Roman profiles of warriors and citizens. Browse the entire collection and register to bid on Bidsquare.
