This season's sale of Magnificent Jewels is distinguished by both superb color and provenance. Leading the sale are the jewels of Patricia Kluge, a collection that boasts spectacular white and yellow diamonds, suites of rubies and sapphires, and an iconic Cartier panthère jewel.
A great colored stone or diamond is rare on its own and to find a matched line of stones with which to create a blaze of color to encircle the wrist or neck is rarer still. The April sale features both exceptional individual colored gemstones - an historic Burmese ruby once worn by Isabella Stewart Gardner and a fancy intense pinkish orange diamond highlighting the selection - and one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by the matched jewel tones of the stones with which they are set. Whether an emerald bracelet made by Tiffany & Co. in the Art Deco period, or a contemporary necklace comprised of 42 dazzling vivid yellow diamonds, the colorful jewels on offer in the Magnificent Jewels sale will captivate collectors seeking the best of the best in quality and design.
