  • Auction of Jewelry from the Estate of Barbara Wainscott on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 10am

NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle is honored to auction Jewelry from the Estate of Barbara Wainscott (1947-2018) as a highlight of the Important Jewelry sale on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 10am. Educated, cultured and an expert on international protocol, Barbara counted presidents, prominent figures of society and commerce, and members of the British Royal family among her circle of friends. While Palm Beach and New York were her homes, she was also a familiar face at the White House, Newport, Royal Ascot, the French Open and NFL Super Bowls. In her 20s, Barbara launched a successful lifelong career in protocol, public service and philanthropy, which included positions with the Nixon White House and the Bicentennial Commission, as well as later work with Prince Philip’s charities and The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Foundation. She bred horses with Britain’s Highclere racing group, and with her late husband, attorney David Berger, was a founding member of The Royal Ascot Racing Club.

Barbara’s sophisticated eye for beauty and quality is evident in her exceptional collection of jewelry to be offered on October 16. Highlights include two stunning rings: a Fancy Yellow diamond and diamond ring (est. 200,000-300,000) and a Ceylon sapphire and diamond ring, France (est. 80,000-120,000). By Raymond Yard are two rare and whimsical Art Deco brooches designed as charming anthropomorphic poultry: a handsome rooster cocktail waiter and a dainty hen carrying an umbrella (est. each $10,000-15,000).

David Webb’s animal bracelets first appeared in 1957, and their popularity has never waned. An elephant bangle enhanced with a cabochon emerald and diamond crown cleverly wraps his trunk around a pavé-diamond loop (est. $15,000-20,000). Also by Webb is an Indian-inspired bangle of fluted nephrite with ruby and diamond caps (est. $6,000-8,000).
