Sotheby's Goes Green -- With Jewels and Jadeite

Sotheby's Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite


Green in the theme for the upcoming Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite at Sotheby's Auction House. The auction will take place in Hong Kong on April 8, 2013 and has some truly stunning pieces of jewelry and jadeite art.

The auction will present an exquisite collection of fine jewels combining great rarity and beauty.  The sale is exemplified by the Blushing Gold ring. This great treasure, recently exhibited at the Royal Kensington Palace, features a fancy vivid yellow diamond of 13.10 carats, embellished by Argyle pink diamonds. Also stupendous is an exceptional 3.04-carat heart-shaped fancy intense blue diamond.

While these pieces were beauties, my favorites were the big array of green jewelry, featuring emeralds, and jade.    Here are some highlights:

Jadeite Teapot Bamboo Ornament:

Carved Emerald Ruby and Diamond Flower Brooch by Cartier

Emerald and Diamond Ivy Necklace by Michele Della Valle
Jadeite, Garnet and Diamond Earrings Kai-Yin Lo


Jadeite, Rock Crystal, Garnet and Diamond Brooch Kai-Yin Lo

I'd be hard press to say which is my favorite but I think the ivy necklace gets my vote. Which is your favorite piece?
