The End of Decorating (With Antiques)? By Lewis Baer

If the minimalist design preference continues, it will be bad news for the mid-level auction houses who specialize in estates. The good news? Style is cyclical and the interest in historical craftsmanship, as well as a need to cram your house full of stuff will eventually come back around.

Cartier Spray jewelry is highly sought after on the auction market. Most pieces sell in the $20,000-30,000 range, with a few piece for under $10,000

The beauty of the diamond contains within it the awesomeness of geological time. But for sheer scale and lavishness, diamond jewelry reached its climax during the relatively brief reign of Britain's Edward VII from 1901 to 1910.

What we love about this article is the short biographies of the artists and their work and also that their Chinese name is written in both English and Chinese characters.

The so-called Chinese brush arts such as calligraphy, Chinese painting and contemporary arts, have always been in the mainstream of the art market. In 2012, the business volume for the brush arts reached US$5.07 billion, accounting for 59.93 percent of the total.
