Hindman’s latest Important Jewelry sale is just around the corner. On May 16, the Chicago-based auction house (one of the largest in the States) is offering jewels from prominent estates and private clients across the country.
The pieces—from such maisons as Cartier, Tiffany & Co., David Webb, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Verdura—represent a range of styles and periods, from antique to art deco to contemporary. A 5 ct. diamond ring is expected to fetch the highest price, with an estimate of $150,000 to $200,000. Below are a few additional highlights from the sale, including an iconic Scarf necklace by Francesca Amfitheatrof for Tiffany, a couple of signature David Webb designs, a Van Cleef 55-diamond watch, and a Cartier letter opener–meets–timepiece.
Bidding for the live auction begins at 10 a.m. Central time/11 a.m. Eastern.
