Gold and Enamel Necklace by David Webb

If you're wondering where you could possibly pick up one of these pieces to add to your casual vanity jewelry box containing your other ~$100,000 ear clips, ~$450,000 necklaces, you best find yourself at Phillips De Pury on April 24th.  Last month David spent about 2 weeks and change photographing every jewelry piece that will be auctioned off this coming Wednesday.  There's something about shooting a job for Phillips that isn't quite like the other jobs that we get here at Antfarm.  First off, the variety, and once you get over that, it's the quality and worth that gets you.  Surrounded on set by such designs as those of Cartier, Tiffany and Co., Piaget, Seaman Schepps,Van Cleef & Arpels...potentially all in the same day.  Photographing a ~$950,000 20.70-carat internally flawless fancy yellow diamond ring just doesn't happen every day.  But when it does, we make sure that little guy is shot right.  Hero shot?  You got it.
