Bidsquare December 2015 Cover

The December calendar is stacked with jewelry auctions for the next two weeks, perfectly timed for the lavish gift giving that goes hand in hand with the holidays. Often times, keeping up with every single sale can be extremely overwhelming. Making things simpler for all those who love to shop at auction is Bidsquare, a one stop shopping experience where you can find exceptional pieces from leading auction houses.

This week and next, more than ten jewelry auctions will take place on Bidsquare and I’ve put together highlights from each in a two part series.

First up on December 4th is Fine Jewelry at Auction at Stair Galleries, a small auction house located in Hudson, New York. The sale is full of great 20th century and modern pieces by Bulgari, Tiffany & Co., Cartier, and Boucheron.

 

Leland Little, based in Hillsborough, North Carolina, will also have its Fine Estate Jewely & Watches auction this Friday, December 4th. The sale includes a wide variety of jewels for every budget, from gold link bracelets to a diamond ring by Harry Winston. Additional highlights include jewels by David Webb, Buccellati, Schlumberger, Elizabeth Gage, and possible a shell brooch by Verdura.

 

After a Saturday break, the action picks up again in a big way on Sunday, December 6th. Jewelry auctions at Rago, Cowan’s Auctions, and Leslie Hindman will set the tone for the major jewelry sales that week.

At Rago, an auction house based in Lambertville, New Jersey, the Fine and Antique Jewelry, Couture, Objets de Vertu sale is packed with collectible pieces. As the principal jewelry sale of the year, this auction features the collection of Dora Jane Janson, author of ‘Slave to Siren’, numerous fantastic Art Nouveau jewels including several signed by René Lalique, colorful pieces by Native American Charles Loloma and a Cartier pinecone diamond and platinum shoulder brooch.

 

 

At Cowan’s Auctions, Victorian jewelry features prominently in the Fine Jewelry and Timepieces sale at the Cincinnati-based auction house.

 

Lastly, Leslie Hindman will round out this first installment of a two part series featuring the jewelry sales on Bidsquare. Below are some additional highlights from the Important Jewelry sale at Leslie Hindman. For more details and highlights, please see my earlier post.

 

Stay tuned later this week for the second part of the Bidsquare series featuring highlights from jewelry auctions at Heritage Auctions, Skinner, John Moran, Kodner Galleries, Alex Cooper Auctioneers, and Morton Auctioneers and Appraisers.
