Our Favorite A La Vieille Russie Pieces at the Winter Show 2022


Following its January postponement due to coronavirus concerns, The Winter Show’s 68th edition is back on. The show will run April 1–10 at the former Barneys New York flagship location, 660 Madison Avenue. And while the 2022 show will host some of the world’s finest exhibitors from the fine art, antique, and design worlds, there’s one in particular that we have our eye on: Manhattan-based antique jeweler A La Vieille Russie. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite pieces the jeweler will offer at the show—from a color-changing Victorian ring to a diamond-encrusted sunburst brooch, and plenty more.

Antique cocktail ring
Antique cocktail ring in platinum with lapis lazuli, turquoise enamel, coral, and diamonds, $28,000

Certainly distinctive, this antique cocktail ring features a sugarloaf lapis lazuli decorated with a geometric turquoise enamel design. Believed to be Austrian with French import marks, this piece dates back to 1920.

Sailing boat brooch
Antique sailboat brooch in gold, $32,000 (sold as set with earrings, below)
Sailing boat earrings
Sold together, this sailboat brooch and pair of earrings (French, circa 1870) showcase incredible attention to detail, from the billowed shape of the sails down to the ropes and planks. Plus, they showcase that warm tone that puts antique gold in a class all its own. 
Sunburst brooch
Antique sunburst brooch in gold and platinum with approximately 15 cts. t.w. old mine– and old European–cut diamonds and a 6.25 ct. old European–cut diamond (also shown at top), price on request

Originally from Howard & Co. in New York circa 1905, this antique sunburst brooch puts a 6.25 ct. old European–cut diamond center stage by surrounding it with a mix of old mine- and old European-cut diamonds. The result is ornate, but not over the top, sophistication.


Three stone ring green
Victorian ring in carved gold with an oval Ceylon alexandrite and two old European–cut diamonds, $42,000

Three stone ring red

The two images above show the same ring. Featuring a color-changing alexandrite, this quintessential Victorian ring ranges between green and red depending on the lighting. A piece incorporating this type of stone is rare, and this one (from England circa 1890) takes it a step further with the addition of two old European–cut diamonds and decadent carved gold detailing. 


Bombe cluster ring
Monumental bombé cluster ring in gold with seven moonstones and 10 diamonds, $18,500

Created in the 1960s in England, this gold, moonstone, and diamond bombé cluster ring exudes the free-spirited energy defined by the ’60s. The moonstone, in particular, adds a hint of playful vibrance to the piece.
