British jewelry designer Laurence Graff founded his eponymous jewelry house in 1960 in London. The company has since discovered, polished, and set several notable diamonds in history. Describing his affinity for diamonds, Graff reflects: “My love affair with diamonds is life-long.” Several pieces from Graff will be on display in the upcoming Summer Jewels and Watches event, offered by Rago. One key lot is a platinum ring set with a yellow diamond, one of Graff’s best-known gemstones.
One highlighted timepiece in the sale is a Rolex Day-Date wristwatch. Launched in 1956, this particular piece remains the brand’s signature watch. The Rolex Day-Date was the first wristwatch to feature both the day of the week and the date window. It is also known for its semi-circular link band, commonly called the President bracelet. This sale will also feature an Art Deco handbag from Cartier, which was one of the leading luxury producers of Art Deco design in 1925. A diamond and black onyx ring clasp accent the handbag. In addition to the available watch and jewelry lots, this collection includes designs by Patek Philippe, Buccellati, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Franck Muller.
