Doyle New York’s September 21st auction of Important Estate Jewelry will include pieces from the Antique, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Modern eras. As usual, Doyle is showcasing a fantastic and diverse collection of estate jewelry – from Van Cleef & Arpels to Cartier and Bulgari – in this inspiring auction. Here we’ve chosen a few pieces that caught our eye, including a diamond tiara and a colorful antique pocketwatch.
Belle Epoque Platinum, Pearl and Diamond Bandeau circa 1905. This intricate tiara takes us back 100 years. The openwork garland motif with diamond-set leaves is accented by scalloped filigree – a very delicate metalwork that resembles lace – edged by small old-mine and rose-cut diamonds.
Cartier Art Deco Platinum , Aquamarine and Diamond Double Clip Brooch, circa 1930. The aquamarines in this piece are exquisite: clear and pure with immaculate transparency.
Asprey & Co. Gold, Citrine and Diamond Bracelet.This piece is composed of eight stylized flowers with citrines in the center, which are balanced nicely with round diamonds.
Charlton & Co. Art Deco Platinum, Carved Jade and Diamond Clips, circa 1930.The jade plaques are intricately carved, and the diamond-set scrolls both compliment and enhance the lovely color.
Van Cleef & Arpels Gold, Coral and Diamond Flower Clip-Brooch. We couldn’t help but include a statement Van Cleef & Arpels piece. Tubular shaped coral sits in the center and is accented by seven round diamonds with an openwork design of 18k gold petals.
Lady’s Antique Gold and Enamel Pair Case Pendant-Watch. This 18k gold antique pocket watch is signed Longines. It is a true conversation piece, with a painted enamel scene in the center and a white enamel dial.
