MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. — After conducting her inaugural holiday jewelry auction last December, Pam Stone, owner of The Benefit Shop Foundation, Inc. was gratified by the results and feedback she got from buyers. She knew she wanted to do another and after an outpouring of jewelry and fashion donations from estates during the last six months, she is presenting a holiday jewelry and designer fashion auction on Thursday, December 2, starting at 10 am Eastern time. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Featuring nearly 700 lots of estate jewelry, fashion jewelry, fine jewelry, designer fashion, and accessories, the auction covers a broad array from fine Madison Avenue jewelry such as a signed Chanel mother of pearl snail cocktail statement ring, made in France and estimated at $300-$1,000, to offbeat “bug” jewelry such as a whimsical signed spider brooch pin with crystal eyes. Among the designer names represented in the sale are Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Pucci, Gucci and Hermes.

The sale kicks off with a Tiffany & Co. 18K gold curb link bracelet, estimated at $500-$2,000, followed up by a statement bib necklace with hand-crafted natural turquoise stone and beads on fabric, and estimated at $100-$400).

Native American and turquoise jewelry will be well represented, including a chunky turquoise stone choker necklace with a toggle clasp, estimated at $200-$400, and a handmade Native American chief cuff bracelet estimated at $150-$300.

Another striking vintage statement piece is a circa-1970s emerald and diamond 14K gold ring, estimated at $400-$1,000 and signed “RONAY.” The rugged emerald stone is synthetic, and the design of the ring reflects the Brutalist style.

Rounding out the auction will be a carved jade Buddha ring in 14K yellow gold, estimated at $150-$300; a lady’s Burberry hooded wool cape in tan nova check, estimated at $200-$350; and a never-worn silk Cartier scarf carrying an estimate of $150-$350.
