Saffronart’s auction of fine jewels will take you across rare pieces of jewellery curated specially for the festive season with heirloom gems that can be passed down generations. You can expect an incredible selection of defining pieces of jewellery having a versatile range of traditional designs that exude meticulous craftsmanship and opulent fine gems. Each lot showcased a spectacular line up of its own – from having emerald and diamond ‘Polki’ bracelet with kundan set rubies, Burmese ruby and diamond ring, emerald and diamond earrings and impressive emerald and diamond platinum necklace.

Be sure to check out the spectacular range of antique period jewellery dating back centuries ago, including period ‘Thuria’ earrings, period diamond and gold ‘Bajuband’, a pair of Gemset ‘Bangri’ and much more. Vogue chats with Minal Vazirani, the president and co-founder of Saffronart on her favourite pieces from the auction. As per the results, rubies were the ultimate gem of the auction with a ruby bead necklace and a pair of ruby and diamond earrings as the highest bids of the night. If you’re looking to find rare collectibles, keep an eye out for more such auctions at Saffronart.

Lot 3 – Emerald, Ruby and Diamond ‘Polki’ Bracelet

“This emerald, ruby and diamond polki bracelet boasts of phenomenal craftsmanship – complete with a stunning emerald at the centre, kundan set rubies, diamond polkis and a flexible multi-link chain bracelet that adds a sense of fluidity to the wearer’s wrist. The clasp features detailed granulation work, which lends itself to the form of the ornament. While this piece would have most likely belonged to a man from a noble or royal background originally, it is versatile enough to also be worn by women.”

Lot 36 – Set of Two Period Gold ‘Akota’ Earrings

“Originally worn by the women of Saurashtra and Kutch over half a century ago, akota earrings are seldom found today – making this lot a scarce one and an absolute delight to have as a part of our auction. Much like the thuria earrings, this set is meant for stretched lobes, as this pair is larger than a person’s palm. Traditionally, akota earrings were made in silver or guilt silver — resulting in this gold set being a highly coveted piece.”

“Deeply intricate ornaments such as these gemset bangri or bangles are more than just adornments – they speak volumes about their heritage. In this case, these exceptionally large bangles are an ode to the meticulous Marwari craftsmanship of the 1920s. And although these bangles feature many characteristics of that period, one cannot ignore the details that set this
particular pair apart – the multiple concentric circles in the body and the seed pearls along with kundan-set, colourless sapphires on the outer rim.”

Lot 66 – An Important ‘Borla’ or Forehead Ornament

“A fundamental part of Rajasthani and Deccani culture, borlas are a quintessential matrimonial ornament. Seen in miniature paintings and mentioned in ancient texts, traditional borlas are round with a visible face set complete with gemstones.”

“Lot 66, however, is a modern rendition, featuring large rose-cut diamonds and a customised mathapatti, with a fringe of diamond briolettes. These briolettes, which graduate in size, are cut in hexagonal facets, allowing them to reflect light beautifully.”

Lot 114 – An Impressive Emerald and Diamond Platinum Necklace

While Columbian emeralds are highly coveted for their near-perfect colour, Zambian emeralds come second to none. These jewels have earned quite a reputation thanks to their saturated bluish-green tone and clarity. The earrings of Lot 113 and the necklace of Lot 114 are absolutely bewitching, crafted from a magnificent collection of Zambian emeralds of an impressive size, set in platinum.

Lot 174 – Set of Three Jewelled Caps

An exquisite example of zari work, featuring beautiful floral motifs, these Hyderabadi topis are an impeccable example of embellished and adorned textiles.

While the auction of the silver and fine jewellery concluded on October 12, you can visit their website for the auction calendar to keep an eye on further hard-to-miss auctions.
