The Mughal Empire of 17th and 18th century India is remembered for the sublime Taj Mahal built by Shah Jahan and for their mastery of floral cut gemstones, particularly emeralds. An impressive David Webb ring is set with a Mughal-inspired carved cabochon emerald of approx. 85.00 carats framed by a large gold and diamond encrusted setting, from the Estate of Beatrice Shorr (est. $6,000-8,000).
Louis Comfort Tiffany
Colorful combinations of American gems reflected the collaboration of Louis Comfort Tiffany and renowned gemologist George Frederick Kunz, signaling a turn away from traditional jewelry at the end of the 19th century. A large antique Tiffany pendant cross is set with lively, exquisitely matched bluish-green tourmalines from Maine accented by Montana sapphires (est. $3,000-5,000).
Throughout Buccellati’s long history, naturalistic motifs have been a recurring theme, with the butterfly being a particular favorite of Mario Buccellati. A two-color gold butterfly is one of Mario Buccellati’s earliest creations and is an exceptional example of his skill as a jeweler, with its naturalistically engraved surface and articulated wings, from the Estate of Beatrice Shorr (est. $3,000-4,000).
Art Deco Box by Tiffany & Co.
A striking Art Deco enamel, jade and diamond box by Tiffany & Co. reflects the influence of the Ballets Russes. The Paris-based ballet company’s exotic costume and stage designs captured society's imagination and initiated a dramatic shift to more colorful jewels and accessories, from the Property of a Marin County Collector (est. $2,500-3,500).
