Necklace by Temple St. Clair

Jeweler of the Swan Ball 2018$27,500 Value

Temple St. Clair specializes in Haute Joaillerie and has for more than 30 years been in the business of creating slow jewelry, using 500-year-old handmade techniques. Last year, she joined Louis Comfort Tiffany and Alexander Calder as American artists who have been inducted into the permanent collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre.

Created especially for the Swan Ball, her exquisite, one-of-a-kind, 18-karat rose gold swan amulet with 9.8 carats of natural pink sapphires and diamonds, exemplifies the almost-extinct art and romance of Florentine jewelers of the past. Inspired by medieval amulets and magical charms, the iconic amulet is the essential signature piece for a very special woman.

St. Clair leads a company with a unique ethos, diligent and meticulous about origins, provenance of stones, diamonds and minerals used. Her recent book of sumptuous images, The Golden Menagerie, illustrates the forces of nature, myth and folklore that inspire her. The Swan Amulet to be auctioned at the Swan Ball is the ultimate gift for anyone who appreciates beauty.

This lot is to be auctioned Live at the Swan Ball on June 2, 2018. If you are unable to attend, you can submit an absentee bid here.
