This week, 1stdibs has caught Egyptian fever from Ronald Kawitzky’s selling show of Egyptian Revival pieces from his own collection at S.J. Shrubsole in New York. Inspired by this week’s Introspective by Wendy Moonan about the sale and the Egyptian motif in jewelry, several of the newest jewelry listings on 1stdibs exhibit this exotic motif.
Following suit, I’ve selected my favorite pieces from the listings in this week’s Estate Jewelry Round Up.
