#tbt: Top 10 Featured Throwback Auctions in July

Worthy Staff

By Worthy Staff | Aug 2nd, 2018

Here at Worthy, one of our favorite things to do is to take a walk down fashion’s memory lane when exploring our recent auctions. While we do receive some lovely antique and vintage pieces, there are plenty of jewelry items that take us back to the not so distant past as well. And in July, we received a number of pieces that threw us back to an earlier, sparklier time.

Although we are almost 100 years away from the roaring 20s, Art Deco designs continue to inspire us in all sorts of ways and a few made their way into last month’s auctions. These Gatsby-esque pieces range from elegant and tasteful to over the top and we couldn’t help but ogle them as they came in. Our favorites included the Tiffany rose cut eternity band and the three stone modified brilliant cut cluster ring pictures below.

Fast forward to the 1980s and 90s where chunky fine jewelry had its heyday. We certainly had some lovely nostalgic moments when we saw the diamond and gold necklace and bracelet pictured below.

Browse through some of our favorite auctions from July this #tbt and if there is something in your own jewelry box that’s gone out of fashion or grown out use, why not sell it on our online auction platform and replace it with something you really love?
