This is a much anticipated event by jewelry lovers all over the world because Dupuis Auctioneers have a reputation for always having a vast collection of very fine jewelry pieces at their auctions. Bidding for lots opened on Wednesday, August 7 and will be closing tomorrow, August 14 at 1:00 pm EST. Bidding online can be fun, exciting and very convenient. You can bid at any time from anywhere. However, if you are in the Greater Toronto Area, there are weekday jewelry previews at their Bay Street location.

There are several exquisite Tiffany and Co., Cartier, Stittgen and Yurman jewelry pieces as well as some lovely Georg Jensen brooches and earrings on offer. I have been browsing their online catalogue for the past few days, looking for beautiful and unique pearl jewelry pieces and I have not been disappointed.

Lot 49: A Cultured Pearl, Diamond and White Gold Brooch/Pendant

A lovely bombé pineapple decorated with cultured pearls and round diamonds, mounted in 14k white gold. This is brooch which can also be worn as a pendant. The cultured light cream coloured pearls have good lustre and mixed overtones and the contrast between the shapes and textures of the pearls and diamonds is superb. What I love about this piece is the gorgeous design and craftsmanship. This is truly a statement piece!

Lot 451: An Antique Set of Coral, Pearl and Gold Jewels

An Antique Set of Coral, Pearl and Gold Jewels

A stunning antique pearl and coral set in 18k gold. The beautiful concave pendant/brooch centers on a swinging coral drop which is surrounded by round corals and accented by small pearls. The fleur-de-lis motif on the pendant /brooch lends so much charm and beauty and the matching ear pendants complete this set to perfection. I really love the rich and vibrant colour of the coral in this set, how it contrasts with the white of the pearls and the gold of the mounting, but what I adore is the design and the exquisite craftsmanship of this piece!

Lot 668: An Antique Seed Pearl, Diamond and Gold Necklace, circa 1910

There are many more fabulous pearl jewelry pieces on offer, choosing among them was difficult. I naturally gravitate towards strands and necklaces and there are some spectacular strands in this auction. A beautiful necklace of multicoloured cultured pearls (Lot402 )caught my eye, as did a necklace of dark, lustrous South Sea pearls (Lot228).

If you are a jewelry lover, I can safely say that there will be something that will catch your eye. And the online bidding is still open so do visit Dupuis FineJewelry Auctioneers and find the jewelry piece you had always been looking for!
