Watching celebrities shop for celebrity-owned jewelry was one of the highlights of the Sept. 13 Preview Party for a Celebrity & Designer Estate Sale at Perry's Fine, Antique & Estate Jewelry. Among the guests were NASCAR legend Kyle Petty and his wife Morgan who shopped alongside NASCAR driver Joey Logano and his wife, Brittany.
The sale continues Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and features a collection of rare, superbly crafted estate jewelry including pieces owned by Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Collins, Elvis, Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze, Shirley Temple, Greta Garbo and Joan Rivers. Plus there are designer pieces from Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, and Bulgari; and vintage pieces from the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, Retro and Cocktail eras.
Three of The O Report's favorite pieces are a stunning one-of-a-kind Art Deco-inspired necklace from the 1970s absolutely dripping with diamonds that Hadley Perry Pacheco modeled as she assisted customers; an extremely rare vintage Cartier Crash watch; and a unique gold and red coral necklace from the 1930s.
