artcurial jewellery & watches auction


parisian auction house "artcurial" will be having a 'jewellery & watches' auction on 30th november. what caught my eye was the above exquisite antique diamond, silver and gold horse brooch. the brooch belongs to french actress jacqueline plessis. i'm born in the year of the horse, so this would mean even more to me. the heirloom worthy piece has an auction estimate of €2,000 to €2,500. i need this on my black blazer.


there's also a pair of beautiful beautiful vintage enamel and silver cufflinks from tiffany & co. i love cufflinks, and i collect vintage ones when i can. this has an auction estimate of €400 - €600. these vintage items fetch much more than they do at current retail prices. and with the strength of the euros, this is just not working to my advantage.


and then there's this 1950s wrist watch from jaeger lecoultre. it needs a bit of TLC, but at €600 - €700 auction estimate it could be a good entry level for someone looking to get their first vintage watch.

love vintage.
