Although names like Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels were noticeably absent from this year’s Paris Biennale over a dispute regarding exhibition space, pieces from these high-end jewelers will be showcased at the October Jewelry Auction, a collaboration between Pook & Pook Inc. and Stuart Kingston Galleries, in Stuart Kingston’s new Greenville, Delaware location (featuring plenty of jewelry exhibition space).

Clients can expect the same excellent service found at both Pook & Pook and Stuart Kingston, and will be treated to an upscale, tax-free experience including over one hundred fifty lots of exceptional jewelry. For the animal lover, the sale will feature fearsome jewel-encrusted leopards and dragons, a whimsical frog, dog, bird, and gazelle decorated with delicate gold and vibrant gemstones. For those with classic tastes; strands of pearls, tennis bracelets, and diamond studs abound. Finally, for those who missed Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels in Paris, consider a tri-colored rolling ring from Cartier in the iconic trinity style designed by Louis Cartier and favored by the Duchess of Cambridge, or a foliage inspired pin by Van Cleef & Arpels studded with seventeen diamonds and twenty three sapphires. Also of note are two dazzling diamond rings, one with a brilliant round diamond weighing 2.06 carats flanked by seventy-six smaller diamonds, the other with an old mine cut cushion shape diamond weighing 4.84 carats.

Pook & Pook is no stranger to jewelry, having presented several dedicated jewelry collections in the past in addition to fine and decorative arts. Stuart Kingston’s eighty year history in the jewelry business makes a harmonious match to Pook & Pook Inc., an auction house which thrives at the forefront of innovation and collaboration, helping to create, an improved and vetted online auction program. This collaboration will be yet another opportunity for both houses continue the tradition of bringing clients a curated selection of jewelry sans sales tax, at a lower cost to buyers than found in New York or Philadelphia.
