Sotheby's 23 September auction of Important Jewels totaled an impressive 16,081,065 USD.
From a ‘Oiseau de Paradis’ brooch by Schlumberger boasting fantastical colored stone plumage to an Art Deco inspired pair of David Webb diamond earrings framed by swirling enamelwork, the Important Jewels sale this September deftly guides collectors from day to night. Modern classics are mixed among exquisite period jewels including a rare Belle Époque garland design bracelet by Cartier. The sale also offers a superb array of top quality colored gemstones and diamonds, many of which are set in signed mountings. Highlights include a 9.13 carat D color, Internally Flawless marquise-shaped diamond and a beautiful Colombian emerald presented in a vintage J.E. Caldwell setting.
