A Sotheby’s Maxi auction in New York: for sale also jewels of Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer ♦ ︎
Over 300 jewels with an estimated price for all tastes: from $ 3,000 to $ 200,000. In New York on October 17, Sotheby’s presents the largest auction of jewel of autumn. In the catalog there are vintage and contemporary jewelry signed by the most famous brands such as Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier, but also 1950’s design pieces by Trabert & Hoeffer-Mauboussin and Marianne Ostier. There are also classic white diamonds and rings of colored stones of different shapes and sizes.
But these are not the only reasons to call the appointment. In December 2012 Sotheby auctioned a collection of Magnificent jewels from the collections of Estée Lauder and Evelyn H. Lauder, founder and heiress of the big cosmetics company. The sale was organized in favor of the Breast Breastfeeding Foundation, the most authoritative Breast Cancer Organization in the United States and culminated in the sale of an elegant Fancy Intense Pink Diamond Ring from Evelyn H. Lauder’s collection, founder of BCRF. The ring was sold for 8.6 million, donated for research.
Five years later, Sotheby is “honored” to present the jewels of the collection of Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, Estee’s grandson, whose proceeds will continue to benefit from the BCRF. Among the jewels is a ring signed by David Webb, with rock crystals and diamonds, and a diamond ring with diamonds by Van Cleef & Arpels. Federico Graglia
