A collection of over 225 jewelry items will cross Christie’s auction block to kick off the company’s Luxury Week. Among the top lots is a Van Cleef & Arpels diamond bracelet in a distinct Art Deco style. Old and rose-cut diamonds encrust this wide bracelet from 1928. After the Exposition Internationale des Art Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris three years prior, luxury jewelry brands turned sharply toward bold and geometric designs. The available bracelet is a strong example of the early Art Deco movement. Delicate platinum details draw the eye toward five central stones. Other notable items from Van Cleef & Arpels include a selection of ruby ‘Mystery-set’ jewels with nearly invisible metal latticework.
Christie’s will also present an emerald, diamond, and enamel rosary from the late 17th century. Its provenance dates back to King Frederick Augustus II of Saxony and Queen Consort Maria Anna of Bavaria. The Roman Catholic couple had ties to the Holy Roman Empire and valued religious items such as this rosary. Emerald beads mark each decade of the rosary, while yellow gold and diamonds accent the cross. Other notable items in the catalog include a Gillot & Co. brown pearl and diamond pendant from Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge and a 5.38-carat orange-pink diamond ring.
