Online Auction: 24–28 April 2020 • 10 AM EDT • New York

Tutti Frutti 24–28 April 2020 • 10:00 AM EDT • New York

C elebrated as the “holy grail” of jewelry, Cartier’s ‘Tutti Frutti’ creations are masterpieces of East meets West. Rubies, emeralds and sapphires carved in the Mughal-style, are captured within expertly-wrought platinum, highlighted by diamonds, onyx and enamel. Sotheby’s has had the honor of presenting some of the most spectacular examples of the genre, from Daisy Fellowes’s Collier Hindou to Evelyn Lauder’s record-breaking bracelet. Similarly noteworthy in provenance is the jewel offered here, originating from the family that boasted the exquisite 35-carat Flagler Emerald. Like all ‘Tutti Frutti’ designs, it is a unique creation. As a jewel by Cartier, it is a timeless work of art.
