Plique-à-Jour Enameled Jewelry by René Lalique Featured in Upcoming Doyle AuctionOct 21, 2021 12:00 EDT
René Lalique was famous for his ornaments made from unique materials. During the 1890s, he created jewelry designs around opals, pearls, and amethysts and used enamel to decorate these adornments. The upcoming Doyle jewelry auction presents a dragonfly bracelet by René Lalique from this era. The available openwork jewelry piece has opals, aquamarines, and plique-à-jour enamel decoration. It attempts to establish a new style to replace naturalism and carries the influence of Japanese embroidery. The bracelet reflects Lalique’s craftsmanship, innovative approach, and Art Nouveau aesthetics.
The auction will showcase a Rolex Gold Yacht-Master II wristwatch. The featured sports watch is a successor of the 1992 Rolex Yacht-Master series. This automatic wristwatch has a white dial and blue ceramic bezel. Also offered is a rose gold chronograph wristwatch by Breguet and a Greek-inspired hammered gold necklace by Zolotas. This serpentine necklace evokes the archaeological ruins of Greece. Other notable offerings include a gold, carnelian, and lapis link bracelet by Aldo Cipullo; Graff diamonds; and jewelry by Cartier, Bulgari, and Tiffany & Co. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online by visiting Doyle.
