The term “mother of pearl” refers to an iridescent nacre coating inside a mollusk shell. It has a multi-colored glow and the thin layer is often crafted into cabochon shapes. One of the leading lots in the upcoming Palm Beach Fine Jewelry auction, to be presented by Hindman, is a pair of mother of pearl carved fish with sapphire eyes, mounted in white gold. Another highlight is a pair of pink tourmaline and diamond flower ear clips. The clips are decorated with mixed-cut pink tourmaline and round brilliant-cut diamonds, mounted in platinum. Cartier’s Trinity bangle bracelet of three intertwined bands of yellow, white, and rose gold also features in the sale.
The collection will include aquatic-inspired pieces such as a textured gold seahorse brooch and a yellow gold dolphin tie tack with a mixed-cut emerald eye. The auction features jewelry by makers such as David Webb, Tiffany & Co., Cartier, and Buccellati. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Hindman.
