Edward G. Robinson's Mauboussin 18K Gold and Jadeite Necklace

One of the most exciting items in the upcoming Kaminski Auction is a Mauboussin 18K gold and jadeite necklace. The stunning necklace comes to Kaminski from the collection of actor Edward G. Robinson, most famous for his roles in Little Caesar and Key Largo.

The necklace, made circa 1930, consists of twelve jadeite cabochons strung together by a delicate double gold chain. At the center, it features a one inch square jadeite plaque set in finely worked 18K gold. Mr. Robinson gave the necklace to his wife, Mrs. Gladys Lloyd Robinson, on the occasion of the premier of his movie Little Caesar. It then passed to the consignor’s family, and descended to the present generation. The necklace is still housed in the original Mauboussin Paris box, and is accompanied by two photographs of the couple, one of which depicts Mrs. Robinson wearing the necklace at the Little Caesar premier. Presented as lot 3122, the necklace is valued at $30,000 to $50,000.

Preview for the sale will be held April 24th through April 26th, from 10:00am to 5:00pm, with preview hours beginning on April 27th, the day of sale, at 8:00am. Online bidding will be available via KaminskiLIVE. A full catalog is available online at
