PHILADELPHIA, PA.- On Thursday, August 20th, Freeman’s will hold its Luxe: Boutique Jewels auction. It is the latest in Freeman’s online Luxe Sale Series, which aims to bring high-end jewelry and lifestyle objects to beginning and lifelong collectors alike.

The 158-lot sale features diamond, colored gemstone, gold, and signed jewelry spanning 100 years of design. Makers such as Tiffany & Co., Buccellati, Hermés, and more are represented. Gentlemen’s and ladies’ wristwatches by Rolex, Omega, and Breitling will be offered, as well as twenty exemplary pieces by Brazilian jeweler Haroldo Burle Marx.

Freeman’s online Luxe Sale Series allows bidders from across the globe to compete for jewelry, watches, handbags, and other designer pieces. Introduced in 2020, the series is set to be a mainstay in Freeman’s sales calendar.

Younger buyers enthusiastic about luxury items will find pieces that set a high benchmark in their growing collections. From a ruby and eighteen karat gold ring by Angela Cummings (Lot 27; $2,500-3,500) to a stainless steel Seamaster wristwatch with a green dial by Omega (Lot 86; $500-700), there are pieces for emerging collectors with different interests and price ranges in mind.

This auction will feature a collection of twenty pieces by the Brazilian Modernist jeweler, Haroldo Burle Marx. The collection of carved tourmalines, topazes, garnets, and more, set in eighteen karat gold, were hand-selected by the proprietor, Mr. Charles F. May.

May’s career as a flight attendant often brought him to Brazil. There, he developed a deep admiration for gemstones and built a relationship with Haroldo Burle Marx. Now, Freeman’s will present twenty pieces (Lots 53-72) of custom-made jewels from this impressive collection.

Highlights include a set of gold pendant necklaces and a ring (Lot 67; $2,000-2,500). Two 1908 ten-dollar and 1925 twenty-dollar coins are roped in fourteen karat gold, along with a ring set with a 1959 gold coin and round brilliant-cut diamonds.

Buyers worldwide will find examples from world-renowned luxury jewelers and watchmakers. That includes both a black jade and sterling silver cuff bracelet (Lot 137; $1,000-1,200) and a sterling silver clutch purse (Lot 154; $600-800) from Tiffany & Co.

Meanwhile, watch collectors will have a difficult time choosing between five Omega pieces (Lots 75-77, 83, & 86), a ten karat gold wristwatch from Rolex (Lot 80; $800-1,200), and numerous other high-end watches throughout the catalog.
