The end of the year is approaching and auctions are also a way of acquiring a piece of jewelry for your loved ones, while remaining reasonable on the prices. It is also the occasion to begin building a collection or to simply treat yourself.

We have made a « wish list » for you for the next jewelry auction that will be held at Christie’s in Paris on December 5th. Yes, we know, there will be strikes in Paris, but do not panic, you can go see the collection to be auctioned until December 3rd and even follow and bid online whilst in the comfort of your own home.  Isn’t that fantastic?

We loved some of the pieces from the collection such as this beautiful diamond brooch “en trembleuse” by Harry Winston but also two wonderful pieces by René Lalique; one a dragonfly with a magnificent aquamarine, the other, a pocket watch entirely enameled with a very ornate chain giving a general delicate allure. These jewels are not to be missed at auction!

Small crush for this art deco bracelet in chalcedony agate, gold and a delightful gold set citrine. We love the graphic quality and materials used. Just as for very amusing and pleasant « Cheval à plumes » brooch by René Boivin.

We have also selected for you four necklaces you must not miss: the necklace « Serpent Bohème » by Boucheron which is absolutely iconic. The Buccellati necklace which is extremely ornate and heightened with emeralds and rose cut diamonds, sold with it’s matching earrings which honors the 100 years of this Italian company that preserves the traditional Florentine craftsmanship. A necklace with wonderful citrines from the golden age of Mauboussin. Last but not least a necklace from the 80s signed by Boucheron that is very trendy and just as easy to wear with a little black dress as with a pair of jeans.

For the diamond aficionados, the December 5th auction will present some very beautiful antique pieces, of which engagement rings and diamonds of fine quality. For my part, I have selected a diamond brooch that can be worn in your hair (why not?). I love the quality of the open work and the divine movement of the bow. There is also a more contemporary bow motif brooch. A necklace or a “river of diamonds” very modern for a very affordable price and finally a bracelet with two fine natural pearls and a conch pearl which can be transformed into two ear studs that was modernized by the talented Lorenz Baümer which you can discover in greater detail on our Instagram.

Three rather rare pieces by Georges Fouquet with turquoises engraved in Persian deliver a message of love; a sentimental piece of jewelry with a very modern look.
