Raymond C. Yard was a leading jeweler who elevated Art Deco jewelry. Yard utilized top-quality jewels and platinum mounts to enhance Art Deco regalia. Some jewelry experts suggest, “Yard’s customers were so impressed by his perfectionism and would wait till he found the perfect gem for their ornament.” Yard jewelry is notable for combining colored geometric gems and diamonds. The upcoming Bonhams auction will present a notable platinum, sapphire, and diamond bracelet by Raymond Yard. The available bracelet features cabochon sapphires arranged pyramidally. It also depicts an arrangement of 12.60-carat baguette-cut diamonds. Another highlight is an 18-karat bi-color gold, colored diamond, and diamond necklace by Stefan Hafner. His ornaments are notable for their intricate craftsmanship. The gems in most of Hafner’s jewelry pieces appear to be floating due to the finely hidden gold threads. The floral necklace showcases different diamond gradients- colorless, pink, and yellow.
The auction also features a Luna Felix conk wood opal and watermelon tourmaline set necklace. Luna Felix’s ornaments are notable for the use of unusual jewels, fossils, and minerals. The necklace features a table-cut freeform conk wood opal found only in Nevada’s Virgin Valley. Also featured is a Chopard ‘Happy Sport’ wristwatch with diamonds and a stainless steel case. The model is among Chopard’s most sought-after timepieces with automatic movement. Rounding out the listings is an 18-karat gold and emerald frog ring by Kurt Wayne, as well as items from Oscar Heyman Brothers, Hermès, Tiffany & Co., and Omega. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online on Bonhams.
