AstaGuru’s Upcoming Auction Is an Ode to Art Deco Jewels
Oct 18, 2022
Mumbai, India–based auction house AstaGuru will host a fine jewelry sale Oct. 20-21 that pays particular tribute to the influential art deco movement. From handmade bajubands circa the 1920s and 1930s to a Tutti Frutti–inspired Burmese ruby and diamond suite, the auction has 125 lots. AstaGuru’s jewelry expert, Jay Sagar, elaborates on some of the highlights here.
“These impressive handmade bajubands were made for a royal family and are pure art deco, dating back to the late ’20s or early ’30s,” says Sagar. “They are set with old European–cut diamonds and calibre-cut Burmese natural rubies with great attention to detail. The pair is definitely worth collecting, especially for someone who understands and appreciates the art deco period.”
