Atlanta, GA, USA, November 27, 2023 — A dazzling 5.64-carat pear-cut diamond and platinum ring; a beautiful Cartier coral, pearl and 18k gold necklace; and a 26 total carat weight diamond and platinum Riviera necklace are just a few of the expected top lots in Ahlers & Ogletree’s two-day Jewelry & Gifting auction scheduled for December 1st and 2nd, online and live in the Atlanta gallery, starting at 10 am Eastern time both days.
The two sessions combined will present over 600 lots of fine jewelry by Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier and others; collectible watches by Rolex, Vacheron Constantin and others; designer accessories and costume jewelry by Chanel, Hermes, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Rebecca Collins and Masha Archer, and more. These would make for perfect holiday gifts.
Included in the sale are more than 200 lots of studio couture jewelry and vintage designer fashion accessories from the estate of Vectra Orkin Barnette – an avid lifetime collector of fine antiques and decorative arts from Italy, France and China – and fine jewelry from the estate of Fred Bentley, Sr. – the cherished local Atlanta politician, art collector, patriarch and philanthropist.
All three of the expected top lots named above are in the Day 2 session, with the diamond and platinum ring carrying the highest pre-sale estimate ($80,000-$125,000). The 5.64-carat, pear-shaped brilliant faceted diamond is of SI-2 clarity and E color. It’s flanked by two modified bullet cut step faceted diamonds of VS-1 clarity and E/F color, weighing 0.96 ctw. The ring is absolutely stunning.
