Case Antiques Auction Summer Sale July 11th & 12th

I’m looking forward to a summer of treasure hunting, whether that’s online bidding at auctions or antiquing at my favorite shops & antique malls that are slowly opening up since being closed for months. Since having my son, I haven’t gone antiquing since I was a couple months pregnant, so I’m eager to get back to doing one of my most favorite things. Case Antiques Auction has a jam-packed summer auction coming up July 11th & 12th. It headlines some incredible jewelry — pieces that are from a wide variety of price points and styles — as well as artwork, decorative antiques, flatware, collectible pens, silver hollowware and so much more. In total, there are over 1000 items in this sale! Β I highly urge you to look through their full catalog which can be found here. The sale will take place in Knoxville, TN and online, where you can bid via LiveAuctioneers or Invaluable.

It was so fun looking through the catalog online and choosing my favorites — so without further ado, here they are:



Lot 26: Platinum and diamond rings with a unique style that you don’t typically see are sort of having a moment. Brides wanting something different yet still craving diamonds has been a frequent request. This particular ring is bold and will definitely stand out no matter what finger you choose to wear it on. It features approximately 3.67 carats of diamonds and is currently a size 4. Estimate: $5k-6k


Lot 27: Not only am I in love with this 11 carat emerald but the vintage chain that it comes with also makes me very excited! It is no secret that I’m obsessed with emeralds, so seeing so many gorgeous examples in this sale from Case Antiques has me very happy. The chain is 19″ long and the accent diamonds which surround the emerald total about one carat. Estimate: $6,100-6,500


Lot 34: Have you noticed the diamond tennis necklace trend? I certainly have and it is definitely a trend I aspire to! If I were in the market for one, this would take the cake. It is set in platinum and totals approximately 22 carats. The diamonds have an average clarity of VS-2 and H color — beautiful stones! And yes, you can totally wear this necklace with a t-shirt and jeans; layered with other gold chains. Estimate: $16k-18k


Lot 216: Another incredible emerald (I told you this sale has some amazing ones) and this time it’s approximately 13 carats! It is set in this 80s style ring, which I would honestly unmount it and redesign because this emerald is so gorgeous. The baguette cut diamonds and round diamonds in the setting could also be easily redesigned. The ring is currently a size 5 3/4. Estimate: $3,000-3,400


Lot 226: Are wide omega necklaces popular right now? Yes! They are great worn close to the neck, in a choker style, where you can layer longer, thinner chains with charms below. This particular one measures 17″ long and in 14k yellow gold. Estimate: $1800-2000


Lot 445: When I saw this ring it instantly made me happy! I love when jewelry can do that and I imagine it doing so with whomever buys it. The bright pink stone is a pink tourmaline, with matching pink tourmaline cabochons to accent the center stone. I love the detail of the inlaid mother of pearl — it is pink in color, so it really highlights the center stone and complements it well. Estimate: $600-800


Lot 733: I’m always a huge fan of auction lots that have more than one piece of jewelry! This lot has three rings, each unique in their own way. First let’s start with my favorite — the bi-colored quartz set in a simple solitaire mounting. So cool. The bright fiery orange stone is a grossularite-andradite garnet which you don’t often see of that size! And lastly, the purple one is an amethyst cluster ring with diamonds. Such a great trio! Estimate: $750-850



Lot 780: The blue tone of these sapphires is unreal! An incredible suite consisting of a sapphire and diamond cluster pendant and brooch make up this lot. The pieces both feature old mine cut diamonds as accents and buttery 14k yellow gold settings. A gorgeous duo! Estimate: $600-800




Lot 919: If you keep up with the vintage and antique jewelry community over on Instagram, you’ll know that a “neck mess” is very popular right now. Particularly, color-coding — meaning, wearing gemstones or enamel work of the same color. I instantly thought this lapis bead necklace would be an ultimate piece in a blue-colored necklace stack. Mix in some sapphires, blue topaz and aquamarine for a fun look! This necklace measures 20″ long. Estimate: $400-500


Lot 1040: So I collect black and white Wedgwood and I’ve always wanted to find a piece of Wedgwood jewelry, but I’ve never found one that I would wear…until now! This King Tut Wedgwood pendant is incredible — it has a 14k bail. Also in the lot is a pale pink colored quartz pendant that is quite darling. What a fun lot, I think I will definitely be bidding on this one! Estimate: $250-300
