Sotheby’s auction: Important Jewels

Sotheby’s sale of Important Jewels is planned for  September 28, 2010 in New York.  A number of the key jewels come from a private collection, which features pieces from Harry Winston, Cartier, David Webb and Tiffany & Co.

A classic Harry Winston diamond pendant-necklace leads the autumn auction season as a star lot.  Showcasing 10 carats of perfection in its pure pear-shaped drop, this exquisite necklace totaling 30 carats defines Winston style and quality at its best.  Estimated at $1 million to $1.5 million (below).

Making a dramatic fashion statement is an amethyst, turquoise and diamond necklace created in 1949 that illustrates the Technicolor world of Cartier’s designs of that period.   Set with pear-shaped amethysts, accented by turquoise cabochons, and round diamonds weighing approximately 9.80 carats, within braided gold rope strands, completed by a braided gold rope chain, length 19 inches and signed Cartier, it is estimated between $30,000 and $40,000 (below).

From period Tiffany rings to a suite of glamorous 1950’s Harry Winston jewels, the September auction presents an array of 20th century pieces for collectors seeking one-of-a-kind signed jewels.  Also featured in the sale are 5 to 10 carat white diamonds and a selection of important colored gems, including a fancy intense yellow diamond ring of 17.97 carats at its center, flanked by white, trapeze-cut diamonds.  Estimated at $400,000 to $600,000 (below).

Below, some more of my favorite pieces to be auctioned off on September 28:
