Jewelry, oh how we love it! The history of jewelry and watchmaking is one of Maurice Auction's greatest strengths. We are experts in precious stones such as pearls and other exceptional materials. Our passion for jewelry comes from a combined professional experience in the Jewelry department of the leading Parisian auction house and within the Cartier house. This dual perspective and passion have enabled us to develop a renowned expertise and a broad network of international clients who hold us in high esteem as well as a broad network of international clients.
Rare and precious stones such as "Golconda" diamonds, Burmese rubies, Kashmir sapphires, Colombian emeralds, and fine pearls are highly sought after. Most of the deposits are reportedly depleted, and the stones currently in circulation are mainly from the "secondary market." These gems can set records at auctions for those who know how to recognize and value them at their fair price. At Maurice Auction, we have a deep admiration and respect for these materials. We are also interested in new deposits that produce beautiful emeralds and magnificent rubies, such as those in Zambia or Mozambique. With her expert eye and experience, Marie-Laurence can advise you on the sale of your stones and jewelry, as well as guide you in making a purchase. We can help you find the stone of your dreams and locate the perfect mount to complement it, thanks to our extensive network of the best workshops in Paris.
