Emerge from your cocoon like a butterfly, ditch the lounge wear and start dressing to impress again.
As life slowly returns to normal, garden parties, outdoor dining, and family barbecues are only around the corner – splash out on a fabulous piece of jewellery to arrive in style – statement jewellery is once again trending for the summer season - I have picked five of my favourite pieces offered in our June Auction that ooze summer style:
Cuffs are back in style for summer 2021, a really easy way to dress up any outfit casual or occasional wear.
Lot 264: A magnificent aquamarine and sapphire cuff bracelet; This cuff features a very large aquamarine that you could almost dive into, accented within a border of sapphires, the fluted tapered gold bangle gives this piece a bold retro look. Estimate: €24,000 – 28,000
Pearls are also making a comeback this season; they can be associated with more classic jewellery styles but can also be up to the minute with a bold modern look
Lot 133: this golden toned pearl held within a diamond set cross over white and yellow gold band is super modern and stylish and is the perfect accompaniment to any style and will transport you in your mind to the French Riveria. Estimate: €1,400 – 1,800
Lot 245: Sticking with the pearl theme, mismatched pearls and earrings are in vogue this year and this beautiful pair of South Sea black and white pearls drop earrings, set with diamond accents will keep you right on trend. Estimate: €1,300 – 1,600
Nothing screams summer more than a deep blue sapphire, evoking blue skies and wistful days by the sea
Lot 277: This is my absolute favourite lot in the sale! The 8 ct antique cushion cut sapphire is exquisite, certified natural with no heat treatment and beautifully accented within an early 20th century diamond set ring mount. Estimate: €30,000 – 35,000
Lot 265: Another gorgeous sapphire ring, in a chunky bombé style mount, pavé set with sapphires, this stunning piece is retro and modern all at the same time and will certainly turn heads and is bound to be a conversation piece. Estimate: €20,000 – 25,000
