A cultural and commercial celebration of love and romance, Valentine’s Day has many popular legends associated with it. Among them is Saint Valentine’s purple amethyst ring that was engraved with a Cupid figure. Legend tells that he carried the piece so he could be recognized as a marriage facilitator. Amethyst finger rings are highlighted in the upcoming Online Jewelry Sale, to be presented by New Orleans Auction Galleries ahead of Valentine’s Day. The auction also features sapphire, emerald, turquoise and coral jewelry.
The sale showcases a selection of fine jewelry, watches, and accessories, especially featuring romance-themed items. Some of the key lots include heart-shaped pendant necklaces, bracelets, and earrings made of yellow gold and mounted with round brilliant-cut diamonds. A Chanel glass brooch and jewelry set and a Hermès cuff bracelet are among the key lots at auction. The sale also presents a collection of accessories, including vintage-styled full-length coats, jackets, clutches, and evening bags.
