Hindman Spritz & Glitz: A Private Preview at the Jogani Gallery
Hosted by Gem X Core and the Jogani Gallery.
Jewelry friends of Gem X and WJA Los Angeles (@wjalosangeles) were treated to a delightful evening preview, hosted by Hindman Auctions (@hindmanauctions) & VP and Senior Specialist Katie Guilbault, of the jewels from the upcoming Important Jewelry sale.
Arrayed beautifully in the Jogani Gallery (@joganigallery) and with flowing bubbly in hand, guests beelined towards one of the highlights: an emerald and diamond Art Deco toi et moi ring (lot 87), taking turns to study the artfully designed sculptural details. Several of us were also completely taken by surprise by a deceptively straightforward pendant (lot 162) pointed out by Hindman’s visiting Chicago members Madeline and Gina. A pearl bodied ovine (still under heated discussion) at first glance, Katie explained the design was most likely a “wolf in sheep’s clothing,” which can be found in subtle signs in its ears/tail along with its provenance by form of a cryptic note.
