Collecting Jewelry and Auction Tips From Hindman Auctions
Hindman Auctions features some of the country’s best live auctions. All items are consigned for sale, and there are items ranging from fine estate jewelry, contemporary art, and photography to antiquities and European and contemporary design.
Hindman presents 16 jewelry sales each year, and The Scout Guide Cincinnati (which, along with The Scout Guide Naples, also features Hindman in their city guide) got a sneak peek into the upcoming Important Jewelry Sale on Dec. 13—the final one of 2022. Bid on antique treasures, Art Deco jewels, rare gems, modern classics, and more, just in time for the holidays.
TIPS FOR AUCTION SHOPPING & JEWELRY COLLECTING
Download the Hindman app to see all upcoming auctions, and to place bids and see if you win during the auctions.
All auctions are hosted live in Chicago, and simultaneously have online bidding (so you can log in from Naples or anywhere else in the world).
95% of items sell in their first sale, so it’s imperative you get your bids in (and bid high!) if you like them.
Get appraisals on your jewelry every three years. This is crucial since the prices of metals and gems change over time. For updating your appraisals locally, contact Allison Durian.
Over the last five to seven years, diamond values have gone up (supply chain issues, more lab stones, etc.), so get your diamonds appraised and insured! But it’s also a good time to look to Hindman auctions for new diamond jewelry to collect and love.
CURRENT JEWELRY TRENDS—FROM THE EXPERTS
Antique cuts in diamonds are more popular than ever.
Yellow gold continues to be the leader in metal colors.
Bold and gold—the ‘70s and ‘80s are back in jewelry design!
Name brands are always going to be big and strong (Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels).
Women jewelry designers are designing with women in mind across the globe, and women are gravitating towards these styles.
Coin jewelry is all the rage.
