- Fine Jewelry & Watch auction on June 27, 2019 at 1PM EDT.
- Featured Lots Shown: Art Nouveau Rene Lalique Emerald Pin, a Buccellati Sapphire and Diamond Ring, and a Patek Philippe Twenty~4 Ladies Diamond Watch in Steel.
NEW YORK, NY—The June Exchange auction took place Thursday, June 27, 2019 at 1PM EDT, bringing a broad selection of fine jewelry and timepieces to the market.
The Exchange collection was led by a finely crafted Art Nouveau René Lalique Emerald Pin. Lalique was a celebrated French jeweler of the early 20th Century who is well known for his monumental contributions to the Art Nouveau movement. His experimentation with unconventional materials, such as rock crystal and architectural glass, and sparing use of precious gems, defined his unmistakable style and greatly propelled his reputation as an artist. This lovely example of his work achieved $16,250 at auction.
Another highlight in signed jewelry was a Buccellati Sapphire and Diamond Ring, crafted in a platinum mounting featuring an oval-cut sapphire weighing approximately 3.20 carats, accented by 8 round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 1.20 carats. It sold for $12,500 at auction, exceeding a pre-sale estimate of $8,000–$12,000.
The sale also featured an abundance of gorgeous jewels spanning across all stylistic eras that is sure to excite any lover of jewelry—from contemporary Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earclips and Cartier Love jewelry to antique, Art Deco brooches and bracelets.
In watches, a Patek Philippe Twenty~4 Ladies Diamond Watch in Steel sold for $6,875. It is a classic design that cemented Patek Philippe’s reputation in the ladies fine watches market. The present lot is in pristine condition and is accompanied by a Patek Philippe box and original papers.
