One of the rarest gemstones in the world, tanzanite is found solely in the Manyara Region of Tanzania. The blue-violet stone has an optical quality of displaying myriad colors when viewed from different angles. A 14-karat white gold necklace designed with tanzanite and diamonds is a key highlight of the upcoming North American Auction Company sale. The four-prong oval center stone is a modified natural-cut tanzanite. With a total weight of 15.12 carats, the necklace also comprises a pendant and connectors liberally adorned with 230 prong baguette and round brilliant-cut diamonds. 

Lot 347, Opulent Tanzanite Diamond 14k White Gold Necklace. Estimate $50,000-$65,000

Leading the decorative arts listings is a wildlife-themed bronze sculpture by American post-war and contemporary artist Danny D. Edwards. The piece exhibits an intricately detailed Sioux Brave man helping his wounded companion in a fluid motion scene. Both figures are mounted on a hardwood shield. Another noteworthy Native American lot is a rare half-pike war tomahawk from the Crow Native Americans of Colorado. Dating back to the early-to-mid-19th century, the piece features an iron hand-forged spontoon with a kite-shaped head that has pierced holes in the blade.
