If you’re in the market for a little bling-a-bling-bling this holiday season (or if there’s something you need to apologize for), Christie’s has your back. The auction house is launching their first online boutique of contemporary jewelry where the items are available to purchase immediately. So it’s like you’re shopping at a store, but when people asked you where you bought your new ruby pendant earrings, you can say Christie’s and make them think you’re way cooler than you actually are.
The majority of the items in the sale were designed by Fred Leighton, and are new pieces that have a vintage or antique flavor. The sale starts today and goes through December 21st.
The sale ranges in price from $45,000 for this “reversible snake bracelet” by Fred Leighton made from “snake skin” gold.
To $1,100 for these extremely adorable Teddy Bear cufflinks (yes, those are rubies in their eyes).
Other standout pieces include this sapphire and diamond ring mounted in platinum, which looks eerily similar to Kate Middleton’s (engagement season anyone?) for $24,500.
Or for anyone with virgin earlobes, there are these diamond and calibré sapphire “fringe” clip-on earrings, made from yellow gold. That fringe will suit your 70’s wardrobe perfectly this season.
