Our West Coast sales of Fine Jewelry attract hundreds of bidders vying for exquisite designs consigned from prominent private collections and estates. The range of offerings includes stylish jewelry for garden lunches to glittering statement pieces perfect for the red carpet!

David Webb

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).

Mario Buccellati

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).

Preview of New York Fine Jewelry

Visitors to the May 20-21 exhibition at the Paley Center will see a preview of Fine Jewelry to be auctioned in New York on June 20. Highlights include exquisite pieces by such prominent makers as Van Cleef & Arpel, Cartier and Tiffany & Co.
