They say diamonds are forever, and we believe that might be true. Faraone, a distinguished Italian jewellry brand dating back to 1860, auctions off fine masterpieces through its namesake auction house Faraone Casa d’Aste, and it returns to the Four Seasons Hotel Milano on November 15. This year, “diversification” is the word that describes the collection, as Faraone Casa d’Aste will auction over 350 prestigious lots.
Featured pieces include a stunning necklace by artist Arnaldo Pomodoro, as well as two of his sculptures: a golden bronze sphere and an intricate artist plate in silver metal. The fun doesn’t stop here. In addition to these unique pieces, the auction includes jewels of traditional maisons such as Tiffany, Bvlgari, Cartier, Buccellati, and Faraone itself.
This year, the auction’s top lot is a white gold ring with Ceylan sapphire, followed by two necklaces. In particular, one is very spectacular with five threads: two of diamonds, ono of emeralds, one of sapphires, and one of rubies. What is even more astounding about this piece is that these threads can be worn together or separately, at the discretion of the wearer.
The second necklace is composed of baguette-cut diamonds surrounded by a crown of brilliant-cut diamonds.
The auction will also include collections of iconic watch brands such as Patek Philippe, Rolex, Jaegar Le Coultre and Cartier. In addition to all of these exquisite brands of jewellry and watches alike, the auction house brings a unique collection this year with the hippopotamus as leitmotif, designed by Italian-Argentine artist Micaela Signorini. A collection of 21 glass and ceramic vases follows, as well as a versatile collection full of opportunities from Faraone Casa d’Aste. This auction is an opportunity for all jewellry lovers, from merchants and collectors to private individuals looking for good purchases. After all, Christmas is just around the corner.
