"Outstanding company. My package said 'delivered' on-line, but I didn't have it!
Jewelry Affairs worked with me and it showed up this morning.
The necklace is absolutely beautiful
I purchased this for a gift, but am definitely getting one for myself. It's wonderful when a company responds as quickly as they have done! Thank you"
"I love this necklace. It is very fine but sturdy. It is just the right length and hits me just below the collar bone. It sparkles when the light hits it and looks perfect with a small charm or diamond . I would highly recommend this"
"Purchased as a birthday gift. My daughter loves her new earring."
"Our grandaughter (6 yrs old) got her ears pierced. The regular earrings hurt her ears. We got these Huggie Hoops. PERFECT. They stay snug. DO NOT hang big.. just barely around her lobe. LOVE THEM."
"Beautiful pair of earrings. Nice updated look to a classic pair of hoop earrings. Exactly what I was looking for. Sellers response to an inquiry was very prompt."
"Bracelet arrived two days after ordering! Nicely packaged. While the bracelet is of good quality, it is much thinner than appears in picture on hand. I decided to incorporate it into another bracelet to "protect" it from breaking as easily. Thank you."
"I'm very happy with this pendant, good work, it's made of beautiful glass and silver. I received the pendent on time, the package was in a bubble envelope so, good protection."
"Everything as expected. On time and well-wrapped."
"My wife was very happy with the earrings"
"Love the item! These looked exactly the one at Macys.com but at half price. They are gorgeous in color and the size is perfect for my small ears."
"Beautiful necklace at a great price."
"This chain was exactly what I expected. It is small and very thin but that's what I wanted."
"I'm very satisfied with ankle bracelet I always have that problem when I was looking for a ankle bracelet because my equals a little bigger than the normal young lady so when I found the 11 inch was perfect size, I can actually wear a 10 or 101/2 but the 11 gives me a little more room. I will definitely be ordering more in the same size."
"Prompt delivery and very nice bracelet, well made."
"Beautiful rose gold adjustable chain. Perfect! Exactly as described and quick shipment. Thank you!"
"The pendant arrived a day earlier! It came in beautiful packaging (a small square blue box with a silver ribbon along with a gold gift bag). The picture is exact with the pendant being the exact size of a penny. Will definitely do business with them again!"
"The necklace is absolutely beautiful, a truly classic piece, and I haven't taken it off since ordering it. I ordered it on Sunday, and received it on Thursday, with the exact engraving I requested!"
"The best customer service ever! I was able to exchange the anklet for one that fit better. They quickly shipped me the new anklet along with the return envelope at no additional cost. They also emailed me to let me know what they were doing. The quality of the anklet is superb and the customer service was outstanding. Awesome, awesome people! Thank you so much!"
Christie’s to Auction Jewelry Owned by the Reagans
Posted on by Jewelry Affairs
New York--Christie’s will bring some American history into the spotlight this fall when it puts the estate of a former president and first lady up for auction.
On Sept. 21 and 22 in New York, the auction house will offer The Private Collection of President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan to coincide with its “Americana Week” sales series.
Ronald Reagan was the 40th president of the United States, serving from 1981 to 1989. He died in 2004 at the age of 93. His wife, Nancy, died earlier this year at 94.
The Christie’s sale of their estate includes a number of pieces of jewelry.
Expected to lead the jewelry sales is a Van Cleef & Arpels suite--a diamond and gold lion pendant-brooch necklace and an accompanying diamond and gold lion ear clips that the First Lady wore on a state visit to the U.K. in 1988. The Reagan sale also encompasses furniture, decorative works of art, books, memorabilia, paintings, drawings and prints from their home in Los Angeles.
The collection will be sold in both live and online auctions. Estimates on individual items range from $1,000 to $50,000, and the sales are expected to realize more than $2 million in total.
This 18-karat gold, platinum and diamond Bulgari bracelet was worn by Nancy Reagan at state dinners. It is expected to sell for between $5,000 and $7,000.
Other notable items in the sale include personal mementos with exceptional provenance, such as a Tiffany American Marine Chronometer given as an inauguration gift from Frank Sinatra and his wife that could sell for up to $10,000, and a pair of Elizabeth II silver beakers from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her husband, Denis, with an inscription.
The complete catalog will be available in late summer.
