Intro
Our passion for Studio and Art Jewelry began with a collection of kinetic jewelry by the goldsmith Friedrich Becker.

Twice a year we dedicate an auction to this exciting topic. The jewelry offered in June starts with a high-quality selection of jewels. From historical pieces, especially from the Art Deco period, to modern gems, breathtaking goldsmith works of all kinds are represented.

In this auction 100 relevant Artworks by 60 Artists and Designers are offered to our international clients.

The historic butterfly brooch set with diamonds as well as sapphire, ruby and emerald cabochons is probably one of the most playful pieces. A hinge makes the lower part of the wing movable and thus transfers the delicate fluttering of a butterfly to this enchanting piece. A masterpiece is the elaborately crafted Art Deco necklace with a six-carat marquise cut diamond, onyx elements, emeralds and diamonds, which is estimated at €38,000 to €43,000. In the world of jewelry, few things stand for timeless elegance as much as a solitaire diamond in white gold. We are therefore delighted to offer you a breathtaking 5.47-carat cushion cut diamond. The solitaire ring, estimated at €42,000 to €50,000, exudes an aura of luxury and sophistication. Delicate rivière necklaces or bracelets set with fine diamonds can be worn elegantly or sportily, while imposing cocktail rings are waiting to be staged.

For some years now, we have been devoting special attention to studio and art jewelry, and this auction also features big names. Italian goldsmith Giampaolo Babetto opens the chapter with four works. The contrasting play between pigments in red and yellow gold reflects his fine sense of color and form. Works by Hermann Jünger, Otto Künzli and Gerd Rothmann from the Munich area are not to be missed. Hermann Jünger is represented with eleven works, including a fantastic necklace created around 1970. Otto Künzli's 'Heart' brooch, limited to 15 pieces, is probably one of his best-known works. Other examples can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the jewelry museum, Pforzheim, among others.

Time and again, artists from the fields of painting or sculpture transfer their ideas into the medium of jewelry. This can be seen quite explicitly in a ring by Mimmo Rotella, which transfers the portrait of Marilyn Monroe into a wearable piece of jewelry. The impressive necklace by Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton is a well-rounded affair. The mirrored spheres of different sizes reflect their surroundings. Pol Bury also uses the spherical element in his designs. The white gold ring is set with 22 yellow gold spheres that reflect the wearer's movements.

>> All lots will be on display in our showrooms from June 6, 2024.
