25 Nov 4pm Modern and Contemporary Art
Maintaining its emphasis on the Oriental aesthetic, and on the integration of Chinese traditional culture into the modern and contemporary context, Tiancheng Internationals Modern and Contemporary Art Department continues to explore the theme of the Oriental Demographics Under Global Visibility. Within a refined scope, the current auction converges on showcasing the linear beauty and ink gracefulness demonstrated by the Chinese contemporary artist, in the hope of subtly, yet concretely, revealing the innovation and multiple forms of Chinese calligraphy in contemporary times.
8 Dec 3pm Jewellery and Jadeite
This auction showcases a spread of jewellery refinements, including exquisite jadeite, stunning rubies, sapphires and emeralds, as well as magnificent diamonds. Excellent jadeite and artistic jewellery designs are the two shining spots of the sale, with the latter being not only an attempt of Tiancheng International, but evidently also an upcoming collection trend in general. A Lavender Jadeite Beads with Jadeite Cabochon and Coloured Sapphire Tulip Necklace fully represents the merging of art and jewellery. Designed by Alessio Boschi, the chain can be broken down into a bracelet and a necklace, depending on the occasion of wearing; whereas the purple tulip can be taken down and worn as a brooch. Considering the collectors increasing enthusiasm about coloured gemstones, Tiancheng International is going to include this section as well, presenting a 20.09-carat Natural Unheated Cushion-shaped Ruby and Diamond Ring, a 5.42-carat Natural Unheated Oval-shaped Kashmir Colour-changing Sapphire and Diamond Ring, as well as a 6.42-carat Natural Columbian Emerald and Diamond Ring with no clarity enhancement. Altogether with more than 40 no reserve lots of high jewellery items, the current auction is set to be an unmissable opportunity for jewellery collectors.
