David Webb designs to highlight Gray’s jewelry auction March 31
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Gray’s Auctioneers will conduct Auction 28: Fine Jewelry, Gems and Watches on March 31 beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern. This diverse sale will consist of more than 125 stunning jewelry lots ranging from rings, bracelets and necklaces to brooches, pendants and earrings. LiveAuctioneers will provide Internet live bidding.
Of particular note is a David Webb ladies 18K yellow and white gold, diamond melee ring, a piece that is remarkable for its bold shape and arrangement. A preeminent American jewelry designer, David Webb is known for his enigmatic, colorful and dramatic jewelry pieces – particularly those featuring animals, as evidenced in Lot 53, a white enameled and ruby frog ring. This ring captures Webb’s sense of whimsy, while illustrating his skillful craftsmanship.
Also featured is a beautiful single-strand Tahitian gray pearl necklace, particularly arresting for the pink overtone found in the pearls. The necklace pairs nicely with a number of gray pearl earring sets, including Lot 96, a pair of 18K white gold, black pearl and diamond drop earrings, or Lot 94, a pair of 18K yellow gold and Tahitian pearl stud earrings.
Further offerings include a unique carved Russian agate cameo. The piece features an 18K yellow gold, European-cut diamond and Akoya pearl frame with black and white enamel. The size of the piece, coupled with its intricately detailed carving, makes it truly remarkable.
Rounding out this diverse selection is an elegant Piaget, Van Cleef and Arpels ladies wristwatch with 18K yellow gold bezel and braided band and featuring a beautiful coral dial.
