Fine jewelry: Luxury and transcendence

Luxury brands and leading houses in the sector are betting more than ever on fine jewelry, taking advantage of a market in constant growth. As we enter this fascinating universe, it is crucial to understand that the creation of a piece of jewelry is a meticulous process that demands an exceptional level of skill and expertise. In addition, the prestige and reputation of a firm play a fundamental role in the valuation of its creations. Emblematic names such as Tiffany & Co, Cartier or Van Cleef & Arpels represent the very essence of exclusivity and excellence, which intensifies the desire for their pieces exponentially.

Tiffany & Co stands as one of the most iconic firms in the world of fine jewelry, being hailed by the New York press as “the King of Diamonds”. Founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1837, his original vision was to provide unique and artistic jewelry, collaborating with leading international designers such as Elsa Peretti or Paloma Picasso. The legendary movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, where Audrey Hepburn delighted the audience while devouring a croissant in front of the window of Tiffany’s store on New York’s Fifth Avenue, cemented her status as a true media icon. Among the jewelry Hepburn wore in the promotional images of the film, the Tiffany Diamond stands out with one of the largest yellow diamonds in history, priceless.

If you crave a Tiffany & Co ring with a dazzling Fancy Yellow diamond, though perhaps a bit more modest than Audrey’s in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” we guarantee it will take your breath away. This exquisite piece will be available in the jewelry collection to be auctioned next April at Setdart.

Cartier has been a timeless symbol of luxury and elegance. Since its founding in 1847, it has been the benchmark for the elite, creating magnificent jewelry worthy of kings, queens and movie stars. Always faithful to its principle of fusing tradition and innovation, Cartier has evolved towards the creation of more playful pieces, moving away from the sumptuousness of the last century.

The LOVE collection is one of the most emblematic of the firm, born from the genius of designer Aldo Cipullo in 1969 with a rigid bracelet composed of two halves in the shape of a “C” that are joined with miniature screws. This simple and versatile design embodies the essence of love and unwavering commitment, inspired by medieval chastity belts, which required the intervention of another person to put it on or take it off. Cartier, a pioneer in using celebrities to endorse brands, gave the iconic bracelets to twenty-five influential couples, including Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti. Today, the “LOVE” continues to captivate hearts and continues to be a sales success for the firm, as it was half a century ago. It has been seen on the wrist of numerous celebrities, including Princess Diana, Meghan Markle, Jennifer Aniston and Kylie Jenner, among others.

If you long to wear one of Cartier’s most iconic pieces on your wrist, don’t miss the opportunity to bid for the spectacular LOVE bracelet in 18K white gold with brilliant-cut diamonds in our upcoming April auction.

At Setdart, we are proud to present at each auction an exquisite selection of the finest fine jewelry brands.
