Lot 54015: This pair of earrings takes one of my favorite earring motifs–the domed, gemstoned design–and makes it twice as nice with two domes full of gems. The smaller dome is positioned on the ear lobe as the larger dome dangles below. The earrings are set with a unique combination of gemstones–topaz and tsavorite–which are cut in multiple shapes (ovals and rounds), all set in 18k pink gold. Such a stunning pair! Estimate: $5,000-7,000
Lot 54089: A waterfall of cascading sapphires and diamonds create the look of this pair of earrings by Chanel. They are from the La Pluie Collection and are set with multi-cut colored diamonds and sapphires done in 18k pink gold! Also good to note that these are designed as clip-ons, so no need to have your ears pierced to wear them. Estimate: $25,000-35,000
Lot 54144: Designed by Palmiero, this ultra-modern pair of earrings takes a forever-known motif–the heart–and puts a fun spin on it. All these colors you are seeing are diamonds, believe it or not, and they are set in an abstract way giving the earrings splashes of color. Set in 18k white gold and designed for pierced and non-pierced ears, so the option is beneficial for everyone! Estimate: $6,000-8,000
Lot 54155: Some Italian flair with these earrings by Bvlgari–set in 18k white gold and cabochons of bold colors.

Lot 54180: A punchy blue pair of bold dangle earrings will surely make you the center of attention. What gemstone is causing this incredible blue hue?! That is apatite!
