Fine Jewelry: Our December Fine Auction is glittering with emeralds, this month’s example highlighting a stunning 22k yellow gold jewelry suite comprised of a necklace with two matching bracelets. For the gem connoisseur, we’ll be offering an 18k yellow gold ring featuring an estimated 14.0 carat-plus tanzanite framed by two step-cut diamonds. A touch of whimsy takes flight with the addition of three gold, jade butterfly brooches, two accented with fresh water pearls and one sparkling with diamonds.
Silver Jewelry: December will be a very exciting month for silver. Front and center is Mid-Century Modern, with two sterling silver bracelets, one created by iconic Mexican silversmith Antonio Pineda and the other possibly attributed to Estela Popowski. Also featured is a bold silver vermeil, sapphire and diamond figural snake bracelet and a pair of articulated sterling silver, emerald earrings.
Jade: Jade will be spotlighted in our catalog, with jade, gold, and cultured pearl “spray” brooches, stackable bangle bracelets, gold and jade rings and carved bead necklaces.
