Frank’s Files: Frank and Stylist Kate Young Debut 2022’s Luxury Week Highlights

Lorraine Schwartz Colored Diamond Necklace

Lorraine Schwartz, Colored Diamond and Diamond Necklace . Estimate: $50,000 – 70,000.
“The thing I think is so exciting about this is how flat it is. It feels fluid, almost like a piece of lace — like one of those lace vintage collars. It could look amazing with a slip dress, but also that softness is always nice with casual clothes.”

Verdura “Midas” Bracelets

Left: Verdura, Gold, Enamel, Tourmaline, Cultured Pearl and Diamond Cuff-Bracelet . Estimate: $20,000 – 30,000. Right: Verdura, Gold “Midas” Bracelet . Estimate: $25,000 – 35,000.
“They look cool now, but you see so many pictures of old movie stars at dinners wearing them. They always remind me of a time when people went out to dinner in evening gowns and furs and jewelry every night.”

Van Cleef & Arpels Brooch

Left: Van Cleef & Arpels, A Highly Important “Mystery-Set” Ruby and Diamond Clip-Brooch, France. Estimate: $500,000 – 700,000. Right: Verdura, Two Diamond Brooches. Estimate: $40,000 – 60,000.
“Most of the time, I use brooches in the hair. I really like the idea of adding a piece of something precious and sparkly in hair — either just a piece coming up or placed around an up-do. The idea of these wings staggered around the head is so beautiful and chic.”

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Watch

Audemars Pigeut, A stainless steel automatic wristwatch with date and bracelet, Circa 2012 . Estimate: $40,000 – 80,000.
“I got mine about five years ago. I bought it vintage for my husband, who doesn’t wear it, and I do.”
