Fine Jewels

In a couple of days Sotheby’s will be having its sale of Fine Jewels, a vast spectrum of jewelry with styles ranging from the 1700’s to modern designs. You can find 283 lots with a combination of bold, geometric pieces reflecting the fads of the early 20th century as well as the ornate, floral style common to the 1870’s.

Check out some of those options — or something else entirely, like the gold and enamel necklace and bracelet from the early 19th century.  Designed with a chain of tiny oval-shaped, gold-encased portraits, the pieces depict most of the 26 Swiss Cantons in regional garb.  In addition to pearl-and-diamond necklaces and an emerald ring set in a thin gold band, Sotheby’s will be auctioning off creative pieces like color changing sapphire pendants, a colorful butterfly brooch made of bright enamel and diamond, and even a sapphire box, a sleek gold box with calibre-cut and cabochon sapphires that line the clasp edge.

This wide range will guarantee a find for any buyer, so it’s an auction you’ll definitely want to take a look at!  Find out more about the Fine Jewels auction on March 18th by visiting
