On December 7th, Heritage Auctions will have its annual Fine Jewelry sale. With over 400 lots, the auction includes highly collectible works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Paulding Farnham and Donald Claflin, three of the most lauded early designers working for Tiffany & Co. during the 20th century.

The following day, December 8th, Boston-based auction house Skinner will host its Fine Jewelry auction, which is led by a highly important heart-shaped diamond.  Formerly part of a prominent British American family, the remarkable stone – of D color and VVS2 clarity – is also noted to be Type IIa.  Purchased by the family’s patriarch in the 1880s or 1890s, the diamond is most likely from the famous Golconda region from which a number of the world’s most famous diamonds hail – the Koh-i-Noor, the Hope and Wittelsbach-Graff among them. The sale highlights also include an important natural pearl single strand necklace, an elegant diamond clip by Suzanne Belperron and one of Raymond Yard’s iconic “House” brooches.

Also scheduled for December 8th is John Moran‘s Fine Jewelry auction, featuring a beautiful Art Deco diamond bracelet, a lovely emerald and diamond ring by Van Cleef & Arpels and a collectible lapis lazuli fluted bead bracelet and matching ring by Cartier.
