When it comes to vintage brooches, gold rings and gemstone earrings that date back centuries, jewelry buyers and collectors alike will tell you that there's only one place to find these items – auctions. Live auctions can give you the opportunity to name your own price on baubles with high value.
One event that's garnering attention is the A.B. Levy auction slated to be held on October 28. At this sale, more than 250 lots will feature antique furniture, jewelry and works of art that can't be found anywhere else. LiveAuctioneers.com is providing live bidding online for those who can't make it to the event.
Perhaps the most sought-after piece of jewelry at the event is an emerald cut diamond ring estimated to weigh more than 10 carats. Appraisers say that the ring may fetch upwards of $1 million if the settings are right.
While many collectors see the benefit of buying at auction, it's not always possible to attend these sales in person. Now, online and phone bidding are growing in popularity as more people look to cash in on valuables without leaving the comfort of their own homes.
