This sapphire and diamond ring by Cartier, Paris is expected to fetch between $125,000 and $150,000
You all know, just by browsing through my previous posts, that I love sparkly stuff. So it should be no surprise that I let out an audible gasp when I saw that Sotheby’s is having a fine jewelry sale on April 19th at their New York location.
This diamond bracelet will likely fetch more than $20,000 when it is auctioned
It’s a work day for me, and I can’t justify a New York day trip this month. But just know that I’m at the auction … In spirit.
Lots are estimated as low as $400 and as high as $150,000+. I think this will be a fascinating sale, simply because the price points are so wide-ranging. This may attract a varied group of jewelry collectors and appreciators.
This Tiffany & Co. brooch is expected to be on the lower end of the cost spectrum with high bids estimated at around $600.
My favorite piece is this pin by David Webb. The cat’s coy, over-the-shoulder expression is what drew me in. It’s an unexpected rendition of the typical feline brooch. Instead of looking fierce, stoic or languid, this kitty looks inquisitive and alert. She looks more like a curious housecat than a fearsome predator.
The cat that stole my heart
The auction is broken into two sessions, with the first session starting at 10:30 AM, and resuming with the second session at 2:00 PM. The event will happen on April 19, at Sotheby’s New York location (1334 York Avenue). As far as I could tell, this one does’t have the option for online bidding. If you can go, just know that I’m living vicariously through you!
