A classic Harry Winston diamond pendant-necklace leads the autumn auction season as a star lot of the Important Jewels sale this September. Showcasing 10 carats of perfection in its pure pear-shaped drop, this highly important necklace defines Winston style and quality at its best. Making a dramatic fashion statement is an amethyst, turquoise and diamond necklace created in 1949 that illustrates the Technicolor world of Cartier's designs of that period. Two wonderful necklaces - both memorable jewels are indicative of the many appealing styles to be found in this sale.
From period Tiffany rings to a suite of glamorous 1950's Harry Winston jewels, the September auction presents an array of 20th century pieces for collectors seeking one-of-a-kind signed jewels. Also featured in the sale are 5 to 10 carat white diamonds and a selection of important colored gems including a fancy intense yellow diamond of 17.97 carats offered from a private collection.
