The first jewelry sale at Sotheby’s New York this fall presents a variety of signed jewels from numerous notable estates. Vintage and contemporary pieces from renowned makers such as Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier are offered alongside mid-century designs from Trabert & Hoeffer-Mauboussin and Marianne Ostier. An impressive array of classic white diamond and colored stone rings in a variety of shapes and sizes round out the selection on offer.
From the Collection of Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer are two cocktail rings being sold to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Many of Aerin’s earliest memories are those of her grandmother, Estée, specifically in terms of her scent and her jewelry. As she prepares to debut the new AERIN Tuberose Collection, which features Tuberose Le Jour (for daytime) and Tuberose Le Soir (for evening), Lauder is partnering with Sotheby’s to explore this day-to-night dichotomy in the realm of jewelry. After offering magnificent jewels from the collections of Estée Lauder and Evelyn H. Lauder, sold to benefit the BCRF, we at Sotheby’s are honored to continue the Lauder Legacy of elegance and philanthropy, especially during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S., with BCRF-funded investigators deeply involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
