PRESS RELEASE 23/11/2016
Faraone Casa d’Aste ready for its “Christmas Auction”, November 23rd at Four Seasons Milan.

Just back from the success in the auction debut on the 16th June, with over 2 million euro in units sold, Faraone Casa d’Aste is ready for a new appointment.
The company, controlled by the historic Italian brand of fine jewellery, Faraone Gioielli, whose origins date back to 1860, and expressly dedicated to the action sale of fine jewellery masterpieces, has scheduled the “Christmas Auction” for November 23rd.
The auctioneer, Patrizia Carrobio, institution in the world of diamonds, gemstones and jewellery vintage will beat, always at the Four Seasons in Milan, over one hundred pieces of fine jewellery and watches addressed to dealers, collectors and this time especially private clients. In fact, a strategic choice of Faraone Casa d’Aste is to give more space to private individuals, proposing under the hammer, on the eve of the Christmas period, highly prestigious and valued jewellery and watches, always of the twentieth century, but that can be purchased with a budget normally devoted to gifts, also around 1,000 Euros. These will sit alongside those destined purely to meet the needs of traders and collectors. Private individuals would then have the opportunity to buy at extremely convenient prices compared to those that are normally charged for the same piece of jewellery inside the high-end boutiques.
A number of high manufacture objects of iconic brands like Buccellati, Faraone, Bulgari, Cartier and Pomellato among which you can see a solitaire signed by Tiffany&Co weighing 1.60 ct next to a pair of earrings Chantecler in platinum with brilliant and baguette cut diamonds and two drops of Colombian briolette emeralds total 22ct.
Stands next to an ancient silver necklace with old cut diamonds for a total of about 30ct, a bracelet in platinum and 18-carat white gold with brilliant and marquise cut diamonds of total weight around 51ct.
Highlights among various pieces of jewellery are also a Sautoir signed Chantecler in 18 carat white gold, with old cut diamonds of the total weight about 1,20ct and natural teardrop pearl of approximate weight of 10 ct.
In the timepieces area, emerges a rare 30s Rolex Antimagnetic Chronograph, a 50s Patek Philippe Ref.425 with diamonds and platinum case and a Vintage Cartier Tank, 18 ct yellow gold, with the dial completely covered in diamonds. Next to jewels and watches, an important space in the Christmas Auction will have individual diamonds, with international certificate, both to be mounted as one wishes or to consider as an investment, at highly competitive prices compared to prices offered by traders or banks, minus up to 60% of the Rapaport official list.
