CHICAGO – Antique jewelry brought outstanding prices at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ March 25-26 auction, which featured the Zographos collection, highlighted by the unusual and much sought after gold, ruby, diamond and enamel zarf, estimated at $8,000-$12,000, brought $134,200.

The estate featured several standouts that far exceeded estimates. These included a rare example of Suzanne Belperron’s work in a carved chalcedony and diamond ring that achieved $36,600 and an antique 6.20-carat cabochon cut unheated Burmese ruby ring that sold for a strong $146,400.

In keeping with the current trend, fine colored stones fared well. An 8.50-carat natural unheated sapphire ring sold for $61,000, while an extremely large 59.00-carat antique emerald cut spinel brought $48,800.

Natural pearls also captured the public’s attention as a pearl, platinum and diamond tassel necklace realized $26,840, and an important pair of diamond and drop pearl earrings sold for $43,920.

Important diamonds continue to have universal appeal as evidenced by several stones that far exceeded expectations. A pair of antique cushion cut diamonds weighing 25.75 carats total brought $280,000, while a pair of antique briolette cut diamonds sold for $67,100. An important Schlumberger ring containing a lozenge cut 4.70-carat diamond brought $134,200. Additionally, a 7.20-carat heart-shape diamond of D color, VVS1 clarity and the rare “Golconda” Type IIA distinction realized $448,000 after spirited bidding.
