Jasper52’s Aug. 31 sale has bidders seeing red: ruby red

On Wednesday, August 31, starting at 5 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will conduct a sale of Classic to Modern Jewelry and Stones. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

The glittering array of 299 lots includes impressive GIA-certified natural loose stones such as a 10.16-carat square cut vivid Colombian emerald and a 62.60-carat cushion cut blue tanzanite. Necklaces entirely strung with Akoya pearls; amethyst beads; and jade beads, respectively, are also among the choices.

Also on offer is a vintage 18K gold pin in the form of nesting birds that flock near two eggs fashioned from pieces of natural turquoise that together weigh 20 carats. Equally stunning is a pendant brooch centered on a GIA-certified natural 69.37-carat aquamarine placed among radiating petals studded with eight carats of diamonds. An 18K gold Art Deco-style dragonfly-form brooch decorated with black star gems, natural cultured pearls and two cabochon rubies for the eyes also demands mention.

GIA-certified 3.08-carat ruby set in an 18K gold ring with diamonds, est. $24,000-$29,000
