Jewelry Review. The 54th Annual Winter Antiques Show

January 18, 2008 • Accessories

I’m a sucker for antique Edwardian and Deco jewelry so I had to go check out the 54th Annual Winter Antiques Show starting today January 18 – January 27 at the Park Avenue Armory 643 Park Avenue.

Excuse the photos as my camera does not do the jewelry justice. I do not have prices and descriptions for all, but have provided phone numbers so you may call yourself if you chose. Or stop by if you are in NYC. The show is truly amazing.

The following are from A La Vielle Russie Booth 69
781 Fifth Avenue, NYC 212.752.1727


English garnet, diamond and enamel brooch. c. 1880 around $38,000

English diamond and ruby necklace. The bows are actually detachable pins. The necklace is either 1930 or 1935. The pins are c.1925. $95,000


This French diamond, silver and gold pendant/comb/pin is actually much better in person. It looks stiff, but actually gathers like a piece of cloth in your hand so it has movement when you wear it. The pendant was originally sold in 1958 to a woman in Philadelphia. The retailer managed to get it back 6 months ago after it was found in China. It is quite a bit more expensive today. c. 1900 $125,000



Cartier diamond hair combs c. 1920

Make sure to check out the ancient jewelry at Rupert Wace Ancient Art Limited Booth 55
14 Old Bond Street, London 020.7495.1623

These one-of-a-kind East Roman gold and garnet earrings date back to the second century AD. $8,500

The following are from James Robinson  Booth 39
480 Park Avenue, NYC 212.752.6166

Edwardian platinum and diamond necklace c. 1930. 18.5 carats $74,500


I fell in love with this jade, diamond, platinum and onyx pin. French c. 1930 $43,750

    Everyone of these pieces is not only a work of art but a item of historical significance.
    It’s important to remember that these items were made by master jewelers without modern machinery.
    That kind of craftmanship is almost non-existant now with most jewely (and other fashion products) coming off of an assembly line from a factory in Asia.
