NEW YORK – The beauty and versatility of pearls will be on full display October 7 as Jasper52 presents a 186-lot auction of fine pearl jewelry in its many elegant forms. Whether the goal is understated chic or scene-stealing dazzle, the right piece is waiting for you in this very special sale. Bid absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.
There can be no question but that pearls have the ability to make a big statement in the most subtle way. For many centuries they have been timeless and classic additions to any jewelry collection.
One of the top highlights in the October 7 sale is shown above, a gorgeous 18K yellow gold adjustable bracelet with nine top-quality oval high-luster golden South Sea pearls. Produced by the gold-lipped Pinctada Maxima oyster in the warm waters of Indonesia, pearls of this type have a natural deep golden honey color and look magnificent in combination with the textured gold bracelet. Having a total weight of 3 grams and measuring 55cm in total, this bracelet can wrap around a wrist several times. The pre-sale estimate is $2,000-$2,200.
Another tempting selection is an 18K yellow gold pendant suspending five near-round golden and white South Sea pearls combined with two exotic silvery gray/green Tahitian pearls. Pinctada Maxima and Pinctada Margaritifera pears originate in the waters off Australia and French Polynesia and have a clean, smooth surface and excellent luster. The pendant comes with a 45cm sterling silver chain and is expected to sell for $1,100-$1,230 on auction day.
Every woman loves having a pair of earrings that will go with everything, from a business suit to a cocktail dress to a formal gown. Lot 29 fits the bill perfectly. The understated 14K gold lever-back hook earrings, enhanced by 10 round, brilliant-cut 0.04ct VS diamonds, defer to two large (10x11mm), lustrous champagne/deep gold South Sea/Australia pearls for undeniable impact. From the balmy waters of Indonesia to their next destination in a fine jeweler’s hands, these earrings are offered with a pre-auction estimate of $1,100-$1,230.
There are many other outstanding jewelry designs in this auction, all exclusively featuring fine pearls. Bid absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.
