Sales poker with 220 lots for Faraone Auction House ♦ ︎
The Four Seasons for the fourth auction of Farone Casa d’Aste. And it seems that the results of the first three sales have galvanized public and bidders: in Milan on November 20, over 220 lots will be beaten in a selection of jewels and watches. With this positive atmosphere, the forecasts are optimistic, with the aim of finding a buyer for over 80% of the auctioned pieces, as was the case at previous auctions.
Many jewelry in the catalog, with glorious signatures like Cartier, Chopard, Tiffany, Bulgari, Buccellati, Boucheron and, of course, Faraone, who is a kind of institution in Milan. There are, of course, jewels that are not signed but valuable. Faraone reports, for example, the art deco style platinum made, with 25-carat diamond cut diamonds with central pendant diamond, which can be converted into a brooch in either version, with or without pendant.
Other Important Items: a Chopard Collar with a 22-carat drop diamond, removable, and brilliant cut diamonds for a total of about 60 carats, a bracelet, always Art Deco signed by Oscar Heyman, dated 1925, and beaten by Christie’s in the 1990s for $ 400,000. Among the most significant lots there are also a pair of white gold earrings, with 15 carat diamond cut diamonds and 13mm natural 13mm pearls, a Cartier London bracelet with a pearl stud and platinum and diamond firmness. For those who think of Christmas gifts, there are also the wristwatches signed by Villa, Sabbadini and Pharaoh, as well as a selection of Patek Philippe watches, Rolex, Breguet, Vacheron Constantin and a rare Audemar Piguet pocket watch from the seventies, whose motion is enclosed by two sapphire glasses.
“We are excited about the path we are doing and look optimistic about this next auction,” comments Vittoria Bianchi, CEO of Faraone. “I can say that in just 18 months, we have achieved the good results and the service we have achieved, and we have made our catalog of items of great thickness specially selected to meet the demands of our customers. Unlike other auction houses, Faraone, having the jeweler’s soul, offers to its customers a true 360 degree service on their precious ones, which starts from the evaluation, from the board if they sell them with their auction house at the best conditions, whether to reassemble them or to dispatch them with a more up-to-date version, or to buy them directly from the maison in the case of masterpieces, both of their own and of other labels”.
