Alex Cooper has an upcoming Gallery Auction set for March 3rd and 5th, 2016 that you won’t want to miss! Consisting of over 1,000 items–the first five pages of their catalogue online features all jewelry–with silver, household items, paintings, collectibles, coins, rugs, etc. making up the other portion of the sale. I’ve spent some time browsing their selection and found some top picks. If you are a collector, I highly suggest browsing their online catalogue yourself and seeing what strikes you! You can easily register to bid online or leave an abesentee bid–because you never know! Good luck!
Lot 11: Opal and diamond ring–a 14k yellow gold diamond and opal ring which just seems as if it were glowing! This ring stood out to me and I think the estimate is a really good price. Estimate: $200-400
Lot 21: Pair of diamond drop earrings–so much sparkle and fun with this pair of earrings. These are actually a two-in-one, where the dangle part is actually a jacket, so the main earrings are simple diamond studs and then you can add the jacket portion to change up the look entirely. Such a cool surprise. The earrings total nearly three carats and are set in 14k white gold. Estimate: $1,500-2,000
Lot 1: Enamel and sapphire bow brooch–this may look like a simple bow brooch, but it is actually Cartier and comes with its original box! The white enamel is in pristine condition and I love the cabochon sapphire dangles at the very bottom–such a fun detail! Estimate: $1,500-2,000
Lot 45: A trio of ladies wedding bands–I love a good antique wedding band and these three are just stunning. Such a great combo, featuring two platinum and diamond bands and one plain 14k yellow gold band. All three are dainty and fine. Estimate: $200-400
Lot 78: Enamel and pearl dangle brooch–as I’ve been drawn to brooches lately with this silhoette, I see here there is a name put to this type of brooch, peacock feathers! I never realized this, but yes it looks like peacock feathers. Navy blue enamel and diamonds always get me, so this brooch is immediately a favorite. Estimate: $300-500
Lot 81: Enamel portrait miniature brooch–ok, so I’ve been obsessing over portrait miniature brooches like this for awhile now, I just have never taken the plunge and purchased one. I love this one, especially the coloring and the features on the young woman’s face. So delicate and feminine. Estimate: $250-450
Lot 85: Garnet pendant and chain–something about the design and shape of this pendant makes it stand out to me. I love a good cluster and while most clusters have a round outline to them, this one is set within a drop, which makes it so unique. Also love the retro star set garnets throughout the piece. Estimate: $300-500
Lot 152: Large Old European diamond ring–wow, what a stunning diamond! This impressive piece features a 3.50 carat Old European cut diamond set within this unique, chunky setting. The approximate clarity and color grade of the stone is SI-2/I-1, JKL which provides a great price point for such a large stone! Starting bid: $3,000
