I am completely excited for this month’s Antique & Modern Jewellery Auction from Fellows, which is set for September 18th! Of course, as per usual, everything is amazing…but in particular it seems as though the auction line-up has been pulled straight from my jewelry box! My obsession with two types of rings right now–Navette and stacking rings–are heavily represented in the auction. So many great possibilities and I am loving all the variety! Here are my favorites:
The Stackable Antique Bands:
Lot 20: a fun stackable ring that isn’t quite like your ordinary! This mid-20th century sapphire and diamond cutie is set in 18k yellow gold and platinum!
Lot 184: I love the width on this band and the haphazard rectangular cuts on the tinted diamonds. Such a great representation of its time period. Would easily compliment other stacking rings.
Lot 189: What every girl needs–a diamond stacker ring, preferably one like this! Antique, five-stone, with diamonds set in multi-pronged mountings. Love it!
Lot 202: Another great antique diamond stackable ring–this one is special because the scrollwork on the sides is immaculate and quite spectacular. I love the 18k yellow gold too.
Lot 301: This diamond band has the sought-after scrolled shoulders and ideal width. With this style, you see equal parts diamond to metal work.
Lot 314: A classic Edwardian band, set with oval sapphires and diamonds. This adds some color to your stack and keeps with the antique age of the rest!
Lot 383: The total carat diamond weight on this one makes it stunning! It is set with 1.75 carats total of old cut diamonds and the setting has some intricate detailing on the sides. Divine.
Lot 424: This ring might not sit perfectly straight across, but it is still narrow enough to stack, and break up the monotony of a well-fit stack.
The Navette Rings:
Lot 58: This navette ring is wider than most, but that is what makes it different! The Old Mine cut diamonds are all original to the piece, making it in exquisite condition.
Lot 113: As perfect as they come–this is a fine example, all diamonds, with a typical navette shape in terms of length and width. I love the skinny, tapered band.
Lot 398: The emerald in this navette ring is long and thin, with chunky diamonds surrounding it. If you opt for a colored stone for your navette, the emerald is quite popular.
Lot 414: More diamond weight plus a scrolled shank make this navette ring a stunner. The diamonds are all original, old cuts with a yellow gold setting.
Lot 432: This skinny mini is so cool! Using Old Mine odd shaped diamonds, one stone makes up the width of the navette. The age on this piece is pretty old, so the wear is somewhat typical.
Lot 434: An Austrian-origin coral navette ring, set with coral beads in yellow gold. Lots of details in this one and so unique!
Lot 499: Rose cut diamonds, combined with a cabochon gem and pink sapphires make for one fancy navette! The openwork in the back is worth looking up on Fellows’ online catalog.
Lot 561: If you are a fan of synthetic stones, this synthetic ruby navette ring is a great option! Set with round brilliant diamonds of various colors, it would look great dressed up or down!
