Why you Should Visit Siegelson Exhibition at Design Miami 2018 – Siegelson returns for the second time to present rare collectible jewelry, clocks and objects created by the finest makers at the Design Miami, taking place from December 5-9, 2018.
Siegelson, the world-renowned gallery offering rare collectible jewels, will present a collection of the finest from Van Cleef & Arpels, Carier, Suzanne Belperron, Jean Despres, Jean Dunand and Alexander Calder.
“Cartier created the stunning Art Deco bracelet and candelabra at right both featuring strong layered geometric design, with an iconic black and white pallete accented by coral red. The black lacquer cuff by Jean Despres, bottom, represents the best of streamlined Machine Age design taking the form of a gear and making it sleek and wearable. These designs would be an important acquisition for any collector,” states a Siegelson press note.
In the past decade, the company has loaned more than one hundred works to more than twenty-five exhibitions and has sold twenty jewels to museum collections. President of Christie’s Asia, Francois Curiel said, “Siegelson demonstrates that at this level, the traditional barriers between jewelry and art disappear and jewels which one-of-a-kind become true works of art.”
As per the Design Basel 2018 website, Siegelson, a third-generation American gallery, is the most important dealer of twentieth-century jewelry design in the world. Vogue Paris proclaimed Lee Siegelson “New York’s king of jewelry.” The Financial Times said Siegelson is at the “vanguard” of bridging the gap between art and design, and with “spot on” instincts, the company was “the first fine jeweler to exhibit at Design Miami/ Basel.”
“Pieces shown by Siegelson epitomizing the intersection between jewelry, art, and fashion, include: The Claudette Colbert Starfish: the most sought after jewel by Boivin, a revered twentieth-century jewelry designer. Jeanne Boivin was fashion and jewelry royalty, a female director of the renowned jewelry firm and the sister of Paul Poiret, the couturier who forever changed fashion with his groundbreaking designs in the 1910s and 1920s. The jewel was purchased by Claudette Colbert, the most recognizable Hollywood star in the 1930s after her Academy Award win for ‘It Happened One Night,’” says the website.
