The sale boasts a lineup of prestigious names in the world of luxury, with iconic design houses such as Cartier, Hemmerle, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels represented. Additionally, the auction will showcase a private collection originating from the philanthropic efforts of George Frederick “Fritz” Jewett, Jr., and his wife, Lucy, renowned for their dedication to sailing and philanthropy.

However, the auction transcends mere extravagance, featuring two charitable collections. One collection seeks to support the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) Foundation, while the other comprises personal holdings from celebrated interior designer, author, and former Oprah Winfrey Show guest, Nate Berkus. Proceeds from Berkus’s collection will contribute to financial aid initiatives at New York’s Grace Church School, underscoring the convergence of philanthropy and artistry in this esteemed event.
