GIA-Certified Jewelry & Picasso Pottery Available at Kodner Galleries
This month, Kodner Galleries will bring a selection of GIA-certified diamonds, fine art, and collectibles to the auction block. The upcoming 322-lot sale will begin at 6:00 PM EDT on June 9th, 2021. Collectors can participate live on Bidsquare.
Several GIA-certified gemstones and jewelry pieces lead the auction. An 8.06-carat oval-cut diamond is particularly notable. This stone has J color and VS2 clarity, as detailed on the accompanying GIA report (USD 160,000 – $200,000). A pair of diamond and 18-karat white gold pendant earrings will be available as well ($150,000 – $200,000). The diamonds have a combined carat weight of 10.65. A line of round, brilliant-cut diamonds accents each pear-shaped stone.
Beyond diamonds, this sale offers gemstone bracelets, cuff bangles, and rings from luxury jewelry designers. Collectors can consider a vintage pavé-set gemstone bracelet from the mid-20th century. Cabochon rubies, carved sapphires, French-cut emeralds, and brilliant-cut diamonds are set in 14-karat yellow gold. This European-made Tutti-Frutti bracelet features flower motifs across small, linked panels ($30,000 – $40,000). Other vintage jewelry lots include an Art Deco-style Colombian emerald pendant necklace and a multi-gemstone yellow gold slide bracelet. The event will also feature contemporary pieces by David Webb, Jean Schlumberger, John Hardy, and other designers.
Notable watches in the auction include a Patek Philippe 5930G-10 World Time wristwatch ($60,000 – $80,000). Debuted in 2016, this reference was the brand’s first World Time chronograph watch. The available example has a blue dial and an alligator strap. Kodner Galleries will also present a Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A wristwatch, a new Rolex Yacht Master II in 18-karat white gold, and a ladies Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date watch from 1999.
Three vessels by Pablo Picasso lead the fine and decorative art categories. The first, made in 1952, is a white earthenware vessel with sapphire blue accents ($40,000 – $50,000). A puzzled face decorates the front while a half-moon handle, bulbous spout, and open cylinder rest on the top. Picasso created the two other available pieces in 1954 and 1969, respectively. Each vessel features a disjointed face with painted geometric designs along the sides.
