JEWELRY & WATCHES

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.
 

A 360-DEGREE VISION OF THE INDUSTRY, FROM THE PLACE VENDÔME CODES TO THOSE OF THE SECONDARY MARKET
 

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. Second-hand signed jewelry from renowned houses such as Belperron, Boivin, Boucheron, Bulgari, Chanel, Cartier, Dunand, Dusaussoy, Chaumet, Fred, Fouquet, Gerard, Lacloche, Lalique, Marchak, Mauboussin, Mellerio, Alexandre Reza, Sterlé, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Van Cleef & Arpels, Vever, are highly sought after and can set auction halls buzzing with record bids. If you have an identified piece or an unsigned piece, a diamond, a sapphire, an emerald, a ruby, or any other stone that piques your curiosity, don't hesitate to contact us. At Maurice Auction, surprises are never far away.




CONTEMPORARY CREATION IS A FUTURE DOMAIN,
IT INSPIRES US AND WE SUPPORT IT

We are actively searching for signed jewelry pieces by artists like Gijs Bakker, Martin Kaufmann, Sam Tho Duong, Sophia Vari, and Ulla. The artist jewelry collection is a thriving sector that we follow with interest. Considered as miniature sculptures/artworks, artist jewelry appeals particularly to an international clientele seeking uniqueness, including younger clients. This specialty is home to all the great names of modern and contemporary art, such as Lalanne, César, Arman, and Picasso, and breathes new life into the industry. We conduct inventories of your jewelry, watches, and precious stones, whether for insurance, succession, sale, or simply for assessing their value. These documents are confidential and will allow you to take stock of your heritage and provide valid insurance documentation in case of theft. We estimate your jewelry pieces and precious stones, as well as your watches, at your home or any other location, as per your convenience. Just give us a call, and we are happy to assist you anywhere.

Our next Jewelry auction will be in January 2024.

Don't hesitate to contact us to include items.
