The first of the head-turning highlights is an opera-length necklace of South Sea pearls with a diamond platinum clasp, created in 2005 by Tiffany & Co. The legendary New York City jeweler spent four years selecting and matching the 55 pearls that comprise this necklace. Each of the pearls has a white overtone and exceptional luster. The necklace, which measures a little more than 37in long, also appears on page 75 of Tiffany Style, authored by Tiffany Design Director John Loring. The diamonds on the clasp are round brilliant-cut and collectively weigh 6.67 carats. The elegant piece, which comes with its original box and pouch, is estimated at $248,000-$298,000.
Equally stunning is a circa-2000s pair of 18K gold, emerald and diamond Day and Night earrings by David Webb. The pear-cut emeralds weigh 3.05 carats and 2.75 carats, respectively. The platinum-set diamonds are round brilliant or marquise cut and together weigh 18.50 carats. The David Webb earrings are estimated at $105,000-$126,000.
Threatening to outshine them both is a circa-1980s emerald and diamond ring by Harry Winston. The emerald, which hails from Colombia and is graced with a truly exquisite shade of green, weighs 14.04 carats and is set in 18K gold, in contrast with the ring structure itself, which is platinum. The sizable emerald is flanked by a pair of trillion cut diamonds that each weigh one carat. The size 7 ring carries an estimate of $252,000-$302,000.
