75Years Of Cartier History To Go On Display

The Denver Art Museum will be the sole venue for a new exhibition of more than 250 pieces of jewelry, watches and other precious objects produced by Cartier between 1900 and 1975.

“Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century” is set to open Nov. 16 at the museum and run through March 15, 2015.

Curated by Margaret Young-Sánchez and designed by Nathalie Crinière, who also put together the museum’s 2012 exhibition on designer Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition will be on view in the Anschutz and Martin & McCormick galleries.

It traces Cartier’s history from the turn of the century, when the wealth of America’s Gilded Age prompted Cartier to open a New York branch in 1909.

Americans such as banker J.P. Morgan and the Vanderbilt family patronized the French jewelry house, as did Russian aristocracy, Indian princes, English royalty and celebrities from around the world.

Jewelry on display in the collection include pieces from some of the world’s most well-known women, and most avid jewelry collectors: Mexican actress María Félix, Elizabeth Taylor and the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson.

The Cartier Collection, the grouping of nearly 1,500 historical Cartier pieces the company has been reassembling since the 1970s, loaned a number of the objects that will be seen at the Denver Art Museum exhibition. Additional loans came from museums and private collections in the United States and Europe.

Petra Diamonds shares rise after 232.08-carat find at Cullinan mine

A London-listed mining company has found a 232.08-carat white diamond at its Cullinan mine in South Africa, which experts predict could fetch up to $16m (£10m).

Shares in Petra Diamonds climbed 8% after the news.

The South African mine is famous for being the site of the largest diamond ever recovered, the 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond found in 1905, which was cut into stones that are part of Britain’s crown jewels.

The recent find is Petra’s largest white diamond since it unearthed the 507-carat Cullinan heritage in 2009 from the same mine. That rough white diamond was given a “flawless” clarity grade and fetched $35.3m, a record price for the company.

“We estimate a sales price in the order of $10m to $15m, given Gem Diamonds’ recent sale of a type-II white at about $70,000 per carat and assuming some losses for cutting/polishing,” analysts at Numis Securities said in a note.

“The extra revenue would go straight to the bottom line”, Numis said.

Petra, which reported revenue of about $473m in the previous financial year, declined to specify how much the diamond could fetch.

A company spokesman told Reuters the stone would most likely be bought by a buyer from traditional diamond hubs such as the US, Europe, Israel or China, who could cut the stone into polished gems.

“It’s more a case of the clients coming to us, rather than us needing to approach clients,” he said.

Petra said it expected the diamond, that has no measurable nitrogen impurities to be sold between October and December, the second quarter of its financial year.

Investors are also awaiting the outcome Petra’s sale of a rare 122.52-carat blue diamond recovered from Cullinan this year. Analysts have valued the stone at more than $35m. The sale period closes on Friday.

The mining company, which has five producing mines in South Africa and one in Tanzania, sold a 29.6 carat blue diamond to the US luxury jeweller Cora International in February for $25.6m.

Petra has in the past year retrieved some large blue diamonds from Cullinan, which was one of the five non-core mines it bought from Anglo-American Plc’s De Beers unit – the world’s biggest diamond producer by value.

Sofia Vergara Jewelry

Sofia Vergara brought out the bling and the boobs for the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sept. 22 in L.A. The Modern Family actress wowed in a red, cleavage-enhancing sleeveless Vera Wang mermaid gown that hugged her curves, but it wasn’t her natural assets that stole the spotlight — it was the $7 million-worth of jewelry she had on!
Statement-making ruby, sapphire, and Colombian emerald earrings (a nod to her native country) hung from her lobes. On her fingers were a 21-carat Asscher-cut diamond ring and a 40-carat Colombian emerald and rose-cut diamond ring. The tremendous bling was all courtesy of celeb-beloved jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
Indeed, it was a dazzling evening for the actress, 41, who was recently named the highest-paid actress by Forbes for the second year in a row. Modern Family won best comedy, and it looked like Vergara had an amazing time celebrating with her fiancé Nick Loeb.
