  • Important Jewelry & Watch auction on April 30, 2020.
  • Featured Lots Shown: An Emerald and Diamond Bracelet

NEW YORK, NY—The Important Jewels auction will take place Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 3PM EDT, offering an exciting array of important diamonds and estate and designer pieces from jewelry houses like Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co., and more!

In diamond highlights, we are excited to introduce a fine 2.02-Carat Round Brilliant-Cut Diamond Ring. This lovely solitaire boasts G color and VS2 clarity and is surrounded by round brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing a total of approximately 1.00 carat, most with F-G color and VS clarity. This sparkler would be enough to brighten anyone’s day and certainly impossible to say no to.

In other important diamonds, we are offering a 3.42-Carat Princess-Cut Diamond Ring. The center stone of this beautiful ring is a 3.42-carat rectangular modified brilliant-cut diamond, with G color and SI1 clarity. The flanking diamonds are equally impressive as the center stone they accent; these two emerald-cut diamonds, which weigh a total of approximately 1.30 carats are of F-G color and impressive VVS-VS clarity. This stunning find is offered for an estimated $35,000 – $40,000 in our April 30th sale.

Stay tuned for more major diamonds in our sale, including an 8.88-Carat Cushion-Shaped Diamond Ring and a Bulgari 2.04-Carat Oval-Shaped Diamond Ring.

We are always thrilled to carry pieces from some of the most notable jewelry houses in the world, and this sale is no exception. This Bulgari Fireworks Diamond Necklace is a fine example of contemporary design from the Italian luxury maison. Crafted in fine 18K white gold and set with round brilliant-cut diamonds, the necklace adapts Bulgari’s modular design concept to a more glamorous night time look, using inspirations from their past “Boules” (or beads) line with the use of white gold beads. This elegant necklace is offered for a starting bid of $13,000 and offers the chance of being purchased as a part of a stunning set.

In the 1980’s Bulgari was one of the first firms to create matching sets of jewelry with the intention of selling them separately. The luxury jewelry house understood the modern woman’s desire to choose whether she wanted to mix or match. So naturally, we will be offering this matching Bulgari Fireworks Diamond Bracelet to either be worn along or combined with its matching necklace. The beautiful accessory is offered for a starting bid of $7,000 and can dress up any evening look. 

The first lots of the Important Jewels auction catalog are now available online for bidding. For inquiries related to the sale, please refer to the contact information above and our staff would be more than happy to assist you.
