NEW YORK – On Sunday, November 14, starting at 7 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will hold an auction of Designer Jewelry and Watches. The 573-lot sale includes a 1981 Tiffany & Co. Paloma Picasso 18K yellow gold, platinum and diamond link necklace; a vintage Audemars Piguet 18K white gold and diamond ladies’ watch; a Hermes H D’Ancre 18K white gold and diamond bangle bracelet; an Alex Sepkus 18K yellow gold and diamond ring featuring a large orange spessartite stone; a Pasquale Bruni 18K white gold and diamond necklace; a set of 18K yellow gold and lapis lazuli cufflinks by Bulgari; a vintage IWC (International Watch Company) pocket watch in 18K yellow gold; and literally hundreds more outstanding and exquisite pieces. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
The first lot of note is a Hermes H D’Ancre 18K white gold and diamond bangle bracelet estimated at $35,000-$35,500. The undated piece, which bears the hallmarks of the French company also known for its coveted handbags, boasts 443 round brilliant-cut diamonds of VVS1 clarity and E color, which have a total weight of 3.09 carats.
A second diamond-bedecked piece comes courtesy of the imagination and talents of Italian designer Pasquale Bruni – an 18K white gold and diamond necklace. Weighing just under an ounce and a half, the undated glittering confection features 492 round brilliant-cut diamonds of VS1 clarity and G color, with a total carat weight of 8.19. The 18-inch-long necklace is estimated at $18,500–$19,000.
A final exceptional prize comes in the form of an 18K yellow gold and diamond ring featuring a large orange spessartite stone. It was designed by Alex Sepkus, a Lithuanian-born artist known for his somewhat eccentric works in jewelry, and who passed away in September 2021 at the age of 67. The size 7 ring surrounds a firey 14-carat oval-cut orange spessartite, a type of garnet, with a retinue of 20 round brilliant-cut diamonds that together weigh half a carat. The head-turning statement ring is estimated at $19,500–$20,000.
