En plein for Faraone Casa d’Aste




A 1920 Art Déco ring in platinum and diamonds, with a rare iridescent Ceylon sapphire, weighing about 12 carats, sold for 36,000 euros (against 20,000 in the estimate), closed the sale of jewels organized in Milan (in streaming mode) ) by Faraone Casa d’Aste. In all, 195 lots were sold, often with higher than estimated prices, in two rounds by the auctioneer and CEO of Faraone Auction House, Vittoria Bianchi. A success for the Milanese Maison, now in its 34th auction.

The second round saw disputes over two bracelets by sculptor Giò Pomodoro, for a rare 1920 Cartier clip watch in 18-karat gold and bakelite, also sold in the USA, and an Art Nouveau pendant in yellow gold signed Masriera Hs, which has tripled its beaten value (€ 5,000 against the starting price of 1,500).
