NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announced Summer Jewels, their first ever online-only sale of jewelry including over 100 lots from contemporary jewelers with price points accessible to a wide range of collectors. This glittering array of ear pendants, necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks and more is highlighted by up and coming designers Lily Gabriella Elia and Olivia Wildenstein with vibrant pieces from the eponymous label of Marina Bulgari, Marina B. The sale will open for bidding Wednesday, July 17th and run through Friday, July 26th and is accessible via www.christies.com/summerjewels.

François Curiel, Chairman of Christie’s Jewelry Department, commented: “This inaugural online-only sale of Summer Jewels is an exciting new venture for us at Christie’s. After a historic spring season of auction sales, we are pleased to offer collectors a new way to collect jewelry with Christie’s and to introduce a specially-curated array of designs by some of the young shining stars working within the jewelry world today.”

Brazilian born designer Lily Gabriella Elia offers her namesake collection, Lily Gabriella, which features gold of all colors often combined with precious and semi-precious gemstones. Elia draws influences from fine art to modern architecture producing contemporary designs using traditional methods. Highlights consist of a diamond pendant necklace (estimate: $4,000 – 5,000), an 18K white gold and diamond ring inspired by Elia’s South American heritage (estimate: $2,800 – 3,800) and an amethyst, diamond and gold necklace (estimate: $3,500 – 4,500).

Keemee designer Olivia Wildenstein developed her eye for accessories after an internship with Oscar de la Renta thus leading to her creation of gem-set jewelry. Wildenstein's creations are comprised of rounded and organic jewels worked in 18K gold, diamonds and cultured pearls. Top selects comprise of a citrine and diamond ‘Bonbon’ ring (estimate: $1,000 – 1,500), a garnet and diamond ‘Bonbon’ ring (estimate: $1,000 – 1,500), and a pair of cultured pearl and diamond “Coeurs Enlacés” ear pendants (estimate: $6,000 – 8,000).
