NEW YORK–All that glitters earns the spotlight in Jasper52’s Antique to Modern Fine Jewelry auction, scheduled for April 7 and beginning at 4 p.m. Eastern time. Absentee and Internet live bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers. 

Nobody strictly needs jewelry, but everyone needs a bit of sparkle in their lives, especially now, more than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic. With improved distribution of the various vaccines and vaccination rates slowly rising, it’s OK to think about shedding the sweatpants and glamming up to go out on the town in the near future.

A real supernova is too massive to wear on your finger, and would kill you before you could try it on. Jewelry designer David Yurman tamed the power of the astronomical event and interpreted it as an 18K gold ring with diamonds in a striking starburst pattern. It is estimated at $6,000-$7,000.

A Victorian Scarab Pendant

A Victorian scarab pendant, estimated at $3,680-$4,000

In the late 19th century, Europe was in thrall to all things Egyptian. This Victorian-era scarab pendant gives evidence of the craze. The Egyptians embraced the scarab beetle as symbolic of Khepri, a sun god who embodied the promise of creation and rebirth. The Victorians loved the scarab motif because it was so clearly Egyptian. The pendant carries an estimate of $3,680 to $4,000.
