Pook & Pook joins forces with Stuart Kingston Galleries on Saturday, November 19th to present a tax-free jewelry and fine art auction. The sale features estate and contemporary jewelry pieces and fine art. With items offered in a variety of price ranges, the auction also includes several show-stoppers. We’ve picked out a few eye catchers from the sale...

18K white gold, sapphire, and diamond earrings, each set with twenty-six sapphires, and twenty diamonds [Lot 38]

These cascading, 18K white gold, sapphire and diamond earrings fall like the plume of a peacocks tail. The slight, inward curve and sparkling composition could easily be envisioned hugging the ears of classic Hollywood stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly. 

14K yellow gold belt form cuff bracelet, with buckle and engraved floral details [Lot 45]

Buckled elegance. This 14K gold cuff gives you everything you asked for in a casual statement piece. Playful engravings of vines and flowers curl around this sturdy design, adding the perfect dose of femininity to its unique, southwestern undertones.  


Top to bottom: 14K yellow gold, sapphire, ruby, and emerald earrings with gemstone cabochons [Lot 39]; 18K yellow gold, coral, and lapis clip earrings each set with a central coral cabochon [Lot 40]; 18K yellow gold, diamond, and enamel flower earrings [Lot 37]

There is some seriously, substantial bling in this catalog, but amongst the larger karats, there are definitely some smaller seeds to harvest. Three different pairs of clip-on earrings, all including semi-precious gemstones, surrounded by 14K-18K gold detailing, would be a great addition to your jewelry box; ready for you when an unexpected cocktail party arises!

18K yellow gold, sapphire, and diamond ring with an oval cut central blue sapphire [Lot 12]

Associated with all things sacred, the celestial hued Sapphire is worn as a symbol of wisdom, royalty, prophecy and Divine favor (we can all use more of that!) This 18K yellow gold, sapphire, and diamond ring is centered by an oval cut, deep blue sapphire and flanked by two triangular cut diamonds. We hope the buyer enjoys all of the good fortune this stone has to offer!

Other show-stoppers include an A.G.I.A. certified, pear-shaped, 4.83 ct diamond and platinum ring, a stunning pair of Van Cleef and Arpels sapphire and diamond ear clips, two Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. pieces, and an Oscar Heyman 18K white gold, platinum, and diamond gardenia set are all pieces to watch.
