A Darien Community Association Women’s Luncheon on Nov. 5 will feature a representative from Sotheby’s auction house talking about colored gems— rubies, emeralds and sapphires — their qualities and origins, and how to determine which are the finest.
The presentation will be given by Alexander Eblen, a Sotheby’s senior specialist and vice president. Audience participation will be encouraged.
Founded in 1744, Sotheby’s is the oldest and largest internationally recognized firm of fine art auctioneers in the world.
Take a Tour at Sotheby’s to Preview It’s Upcoming Jewelry Auction
Arrangements can be made for tours of the preview for the upcoming jewelry auction in New York City in December.
While intimidating to some, jewelry auctions offer the opportunity to admire, study and collect jewelry and gems that can be surprisingly reasonable up to quite opulent.
Anyone can participate as a bidder or consigner, and bidding can be done live in the Salesroom or even in the comfort of your home.
