Inside the Auction | Jewelry of Oscar Heyman & Brothers
Our upcoming Important Jewelry auction includes a number of items designed by famed jewelry house Oscar Heyman and Brothers. These examples display much of what the company is known for: exquisite craftsmanship, impeccable standards and attention to detail.
Known in the industry as the ‘jeweler’s jeweler’ the house is known for creating the mystery settings for Van Cleef & Arpels along with the Taylor-Burton diamond for Cartier in addition to their own body of work.
An Oscar Heyman Riviera necklace (Lot 104) speaks to the jewelry house’s superior craftsmanship and technique. The necklace features 99 impeccably matched and graduated oval diamonds set in platinum. The fine craftsmanship gives the necklace a fluidity not always found in similar designs.
A platinum, diamond and ruby brooch from 1959 (Lot 150) is an example of Oscar Heyman’s very popular floral motif. Each flower has been meticulously designed. The classic form is highlighted by the carefully chosen stones, which offer the brooch symmetry and balance.
An Oscar Heyman yellow gold, sapphire and diamond pearl torsade necklace (Lot 137) does not include the typical Oscar Heyman signature, an encircled HB, but a more discreet dash-dot-dash signature. Accompanying bracelet and earrings are also available in our upcoming sale.
