Michaan’s Exceptional Jewelry Auction of Tiffany and Many More Tops $1 Million
Fine designer jewels of great beauty and the highest quality drew crowds of admirers and bidders
to Michaan’s on December 10, 2018. Prices soared on a wave of enthusiasm for designs by
Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co., Bulgari, Buccellati, Verdura, David Webb and many more such
as Chanel and Hermès. The special Monday event brought scores of visitors to the auction
gallery in Alameda, CA, with many flying in for the occasion.
Long before the bang of the gavel began to punctuate the buzz of the live auction crowd, online
bids were in place for each of the 115 lots offered. “This auction was among Michaan’s most
highly anticipated events of 2018,” says COO and auctioneer Scott Bradley. “It was a privilege to
present property of this caliber, and a great pleasure to see the wonderful response.”
Michaan’s Exceptional Jewelry Auction presented the jewels of a single distinguished collector, a
woman of style and discernment who had an eye for “the best of the best.” In addition to the
phalanx of online bids, phone bidding was intense throughout the live auction. “With 100% sell
through, the sale realized over $1 million from just 115 lots of jewelry,” says Michaan’s gemologist
and jewelry specialist Elise Coronado. “Our buyers’ response to this offering was a thrill to
experience.”
Bidding was especially fierce for the Tiffany & Co. pieces offered, many of which sold for around
double their high estimates. The pair of Tiffany diamond stud earrings, with bezel-set stones each
weighing over two and a quarter carats, realized $45,000. Schlumberger's ‘acorn’ earrings
brought $30,000 and the Schlumberger ‘Cooper’ diamond bracelet sold for $57,000.
Schlumberger’s ‘dot lozenge’ white enamel and gold hinged bracelet brought $21,600.
Rings with eye-popping gemstones were top sellers. The ring featuring a Colombian emerald of
more than 10 carats, estimated at $10,000-$15,000, sold for the realized price of $84,000. Lot
1115, the fancy yellow emerald cut diamond, set with triangular white diamonds in a platinum and
18k yellow gold ring, sold for $114,000.
Verdura’s luxurious designs are coveted by women of all ages. In Michaan’s Exceptional Jewelry
Auction, Verdura’s double crescent diamond bracelet sold for $32,400. The iconic‘Maltese Cross’
bracelet brought $24,000 and Verdura’s diamond ‘comet’ earrings reached $30,000.
Collectors were excited to find the exquisite designs of David Webb in the December 10 auction.
Favored by celebrities and top stylists, David Webb jewels have that “wow” factor that make them
perfect for the red carpet. Webb’s creations in carved coral were featured, with the bracelet of
coral, enamel and diamonds fetching $39,000 and the earrings, $16,800.
Fine jewelry is a focus of each monthly auction at Michaan’s. In February’s sale Coronado offers
Tiffany sapphires, Art Deco jewels and First Phase Native American jewelry pieces of turquoise
and silver. Ancientbeads from around the world, the treasure trove of a single California collector,
are featured.
