Awards season has begun, and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski is already off to a busy start – at the 2017 Golden Globes, his clients included Jenna Dewan Tatum, Sarah Hyland, Kaley Cuoco and Lea Michele. Ahead of his next major event and Sotheby’s Fine Jewels sale, the stylist chatted with us about all things glamorous. “People are invested in the fantasy of the red carpet,” said Goreski, who is currently a co-host on E!’s Fashion Police, as well as the channel’s Live from the Red Carpet pre-show. “They want to see: couture gowns, glittering jewels and high price tags to discuss, enjoy and be in awe of.” Given his experience as a stylist, critic and TV personality, we couldn’t wait to ask Goreski about what makes red carpet jewels so alluring and the celebrities that always get it right.
Although mined in a myriad of colours, garnet is believed to be named for its often deep red hue, reminiscent of a pomegranate seed, or “granatum” in Greek. As the ancient myth goes, Hades lured the innocent and majestic Persephone into the Underworld by giving her pomegranate seeds, and her absence from Earth was thought to have caused winter. In honour of January’s birthstone, we present twelve garnet jewels from our archive and upcoming Fine Jewels sale that are as tempting and illustrious as the fruit that inspired the gem’s name.

NEW YORK – Every year the Pantone Color Institute selects a Colour of the Year, which serves as a, “colour snapshot,” of the state of the world. This year’s hue Greenery evokes the freshness and regrowth of springtime. Pantone describes Greenery as a “fresh and zesty yellow-green shade,” reminiscent of the serenity and purity of the outdoors. In the world of jewellery, Greenery is well represented by peridots, green tourmalines, and enamel in lime-like hues. Here, we take a look at some verdant jewels from our upcoming Fine Jewels sale, sure to get your New Year off to a fresh start. LAUNCH SLIDESHOW
