Faraone: Two Auctions in One

On the 6th of May, watches and jewels of the 20th century in two separate auctions for Faraone Casa d’Aste.

Milan, Four Seasons Hotel. This is the right place where to be on the 6th of May to be part of the next auction of Faraone Casa d’Aste. A prestigious collection of jewels and a remarkable assortment of watches for two distinct auctions in which the 323 lots selected by the Milanese auction house will go under the hammer of two different auctioneers in front of an audience mainly composed of Italian and foreign collectors and traders. Jewellery and watches will be accompanied by a series of fine silver items, from Faraone and not, and purses by iconic brands such as Hermes, Bulgari and Cartier. So, the day will start with a top selection of Rolex, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and niche ones such as Carlo Ferrara, Cvstos, Tag Heuer, while the afternoon will be the time for the two jewellery sessions. On top, amarquise D Color VVS2 diamond weighting 4.98ct, GIA certified, will shine among the various lots, followed by three no heat Burma sapphires: a 7ct, 4ct and a 26ct cabochon cut. Not for everyone also the three Colombian emeralds 14.84ct mounted on a yellow gold ring, a Faraone’s 4ct with white gold setting and another one on a 16ct pendant, as well as two Bulgari rings with a 3ct diamond each. Next to vintage pieces by Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier and five lots of various strands of natural pearls, which gave great satisfaction in last November’s auction reaching mind-boggling values, a Buccellati diamond brooch  stands out, a complete parure and a pair of earrings of the same Maison as well as a Pomellato 1980s full parure in white and yellow gold with  brilliant cut diamonds. It will then follow a series of Scavia 1980s jewellery. Coming back to the watch section,in the Rolex category there is a rare (ref. 4645) Steve Mac Queen: this watch is considered a rarity by the estimators, especially in rose gold, having the crowned brand produced very few square watches. This feature makes it highly desirable. The latter will be flanked by a 1990’s GMT Master II (ref. 16710).The list of wonders put under the hammer also boasts a series of Jaeger Le-Coultre and Cartier, both vintage from the 60s and more contemporary as well as iconic brands such as Breguet and Omega.To complete the proposal, Faraone Casa d’Aste includes a Panerai Luminor and a more recent and sought-after Tudor Heritage Montecarlo.
