Fall Jewelry Auctions 2013

It is hard to believe, but fall is on its way and so are many exciting jewelry auctions.

Skinner Auction house in Boston just had an auction yesterday, and I was admiring this sweet antique diamond flower brooch, just lovely.

 

 

 

Sotheby's always has wonderful vintage pieces, here are a few of my favorites:

 

 

The dog is by Rene Boivin and is French of course with an articulated torso (estimate $$70,000-$90,000). The collar part can be removed and worn as a ring!  Just look at that cute realistic doggy face.

The rabbit with the little baguette legs, is by American jeweler Raymond Yard (estimate $60,000-$80,000), and the dancer is by Van Cleef and Arpels (estimate $100,000-$150,000).  The workmanship in these pieces is incredible and they are highly sought after.

Here is a pave pink diamond teddy bear by Graff, note how his head turns and his arms and legs.  Wonder how long a piece like this takes to create?

 

I have my eye on this Harry Winston ring, 19.51 carats of WOW, expected to go for $1,200,000 to $1,800,00 at Sotheby's New York on the 24th of September.  My heart be still!
