NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle’s semiannual auctions of California 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. Among the fine watches are exceptional examples for ladies and gentlemen by such prestigious makers as Rolex, Piaget and Patek Philippe.

Art Nouveau jewelry reflects the era’s fascination with the natural world. A gold, diamond, moonstone and pearl pendant depicting a beauty with plique-à-jour enamel dragonfly wings by Louis Aucoc (est. $20,000-30,000) and a gold, enamel and gem-set brooch pendant designed as a dragonfly on a flowering vine, possibly by Teterger (est. $10,000-15,000), continue to enchant us today. Echoing their sinuous lines is a gold and tanzanite ring, circa 1990s, by Belperron (est. $5,000-7,000).

Certain to attract attention is an important Art Moderne jabot by French jewelry designer Jean Fouquet (1899-1984). Fashioned from gold, silver, black onyx and diamonds, the circa 1935 jabot is Property from an Important Jewel Collector (est. $15,000-20,000). Third generation of the House of Fouquet, Jean Fouquet designed jewelry only from 1925 to 1939. As one of the cutting edge Artist-Jewelers that ushered in the Art Moderne movement, Jean Fouquet’s pieces were decisively modern. His masterful designs reflected an incorporation of shapes and angles juxtaposed in creative interpretations.
