NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle’s auction of Important Jewelry on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 10am will showcase dazzling jewelry by the world’s most prestigious makers, including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, David Webb and Tiffany & Co., with offerings spanning the Antique, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modern eras. Also attracting attention will be high-carat-weight diamond and colored stone rings, as well as fine watches, gentlemen’s accessories and objets de vertu.
Jewelry auctions at Doyle always feature an array of diamond rings in a variety of cuts and carat weights. Fall highlights include a ring centering an impressive pear-shaped diamond of approx. 5.01 carats, D color, VVS2 clarity (est. $125,000-175,000). An exquisite Art Deco ring glitters with a bold cushion old-mine cut diamond of approx. 6.41 carats, F color, VS2 clarity, from the Estate of Barbara Hartley Lord (est. $80,000-120,000).
Among the highlights of the sale are two elegant emerald and diamond brooches set with exceptional stones that display the prized deep green color concentration of Colombian emeralds. Emeralds of this quality are always highly sought after, and even more so at the moment.

Van Cleef & Arpels
Platinum and diamond cluster earclips by Van Cleef & Arpels are a perennial favorite – as classic as the proverbial little black dress (est. $25,000-35,000). A photograph of Grace Kelly wearing a pair of cultured pearl and diamond earrings similar to a pair in the sale appears on the back cover of Set in Style, The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels (Smithsonian, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum) (est. $15,000-20,000).
