Lot 17: Antique and vintage moonstone jewelry is becoming harder and harder to come by. This necklace and earrings set is not only impeccable but it is brimming with the most gorgeous moonstones, all well-matched and giving off some magical vibes. The necklace is composed of 23 moonstones and is articulated in all the right places, making it as comfortable as it is stunning. The matching earrings were believed to have been created later and make a nice pairing with the necklace. Estimate: $1,560-2,340
Lot 32: An Art Deco Era sapphire and diamond ring that catches heads wanting a second look! This ring is set with a 13.11 carat sapphire of Ceylon origin, which comes with a AGL certificate. The mounting is platinum and set with diamonds. Clearly a winning piece! Estimate: $17,160-23,400
Lot 171: Any gemstone that is kite-shaped is automatically cool to me! This pendant features an opal that is kite-shaped, something I haven’t seen before. The bottom of the pendant has a diamond briolette which is a gorgeous touch, as well as the diamonds that frame the opal. I would love to own this piece. Estimate: $3,120-4,680
Lot 190: These earrings stopped me in my tracks — I can’t imagine what they would do in real life! Such a unique combination of emeralds, diamonds, hematite and mother of pearl. I’ve never seen those gemstones paired together. These are done in 18k yellow gold and exquisite in every sense of the word! Estimate: $1,560-2,028
Lot 201: If you’re looking to wear one of the hottest trends right now in jewelry but want a vintage piece instead of something new, look no further than this rainbow gemstone bracelet! Big, bold gemstones are meticulously spaced out to form a line of color around your wrist. Each gemstone is unique: two citrine, two yellow sapphires, an aquamarine, a blue sapphire, and Padparadscha sapphire, an orangey-pink sapphire, a madeira citrine and a smokey quartz. Estimate: $18,720-21,840
Lot 218.02: In case you needed MORE color, I’ve also picked this truly remarkable multi-colored sapphire necklace as one of my top picks. There are 52 sapphires in this piece, all of them either blue, pink, purple or yellow. Could you have guessed they all total approximately 100 carats?! This necklace measures 16 1/4 inches, so it will hug closely around most necks. Estimate: $6,240-9,360
Lot 218.03: I’m always fascinated by emeralds and this emerald and diamond ring is my favorite from this sale. The emerald is a typical emerald cut in shape, but what is not typical is the size — it weighs 5 carats! I love the accent diamonds and the tapered baguettes make for an elegant style for this piece. The ring is all set in platinum as well. Estimate: $3,120-4,680
Lot 222: A more modern piece than my usual taste, however I love the elongated style of the necklace, the ombre effect of the gemstones’ color and the pattern of the piece itself. The juxtaposition of the different colors of the earrings vs. the necklace also make the piece special, done with multi-colored sapphires in 18k and 14k white gold. Estimate: $1,872-2,340
Lot 231: There are so many elements that come together to make this ring a masterpiece! I love the blackened steel, the claw-prongs, the simple solitaire design and of course that incredible sapphire! It is 6.87 carats and Ceylon in origin, which comes with an AGL certificate. Estimate: $15,600-18,720
Lot 232: You might say I have a thing for sapphires after seeing all my top picks — this antique brooch also had to be included. Circa 1890 and set with sapphires and diamonds, the wreath and laurel motif is both elegant and bold. The brooch is done in 18k and silver, with over 13 carats of sapphires and ready to be pinned to your blazer or dress. Estimate: $2,340-3,120
Lot 238: I’ve been coveting an Art Deco diamond bracelet lately after trying so many on, I can’t help but want to pile a few on and wear them everyday. This one is a stunner, with its wide measurements and oval links are very unique. The bracelet has a geometric feel to it, as you can see from the oval links and rectangular plaques. The diamonds total approximately 14 carats, all set in platinum, by Walser Wald. Estimate: $3,900-5,460
Lot 414: As grand as you can get! This diamond fringe collar necklace by Graff is up for bid and is out of this world. Graduating pear-shaped diamonds and round diamonds make up the entirety of the piece, which measures 15 5/8 inches. Elegance with every diamond, the largest being approximately 2 carats, for a grand total of 40 carats. Comes with original box and several GIA reports. Estimate: $140,400-171,600
