Since 1977, Joel Arthur Rosenthal (JAR) has produced around 70 to 80 pieces of jewelry a year, each of them one of a kind. Referred to as the “Fabergé of our times,” JAR’s pieces have been worn by such style icons as Elizabeth Taylor, Elle Macpherson, Barbara Walters, and Princess Firyal of Jordan. A pair of violet earrings from JAR will be available in the upcoming Jewels Online sale, presented by Christie’s. The floral ear clips first appeared in a 2002 Somerset House exhibition in London when JAR sent each of his 145 clients, who loaned him their jewels for the show, a pair of these earrings in colored aluminum.
Also among the auction’s featured lots is a Cerf-Volants ring by Van Cleef & Arpels. Introduced in 2015, Cerf-Volants celebrates the freedom and protective nature of kites. The available ring is designed to resemble two kites set with diamonds, sapphires, mother-of-pearl, and abalone. A pair of Graff earrings with an openwork hoop of rubies overlaid with butterfly motif diamonds is offered as well. With over 300 lots, the event also includes jewelry by Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and David Webb. To view the entire catalog and place a bid, visit Christie’s.
