    Dali Brooch Sells for Almost $150,000

    Posted on October 15th, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

    A piece of jewelry designed by surrealist artist Salvador Dali sold for nearly $150,000 over the summer.

    The three-inch long brooch, in the shape of a human eye, is made from diamond and platinum, and features a small gold watch in blue enamel in the center. The piece was originally made by famed New York jewelers Alemany & Ertman as a gift for Dali’s wife in 1949.

    Dali only designed around 20 pieces of jewelry in his life, thus it is very rare to see one come on the market. An Italian man bought this particular piece in the 1950s and passed it down through his family.

    It went up for sale at auctioneers Dreweatts of Newbury, Berkshire, where it was expected to sell for just under $20,000. Instead, it was bought for 12 times the amount.

    People from all over the world were bidding on the piece, but it eventually sold to a private collector in the United States.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
