Fine valuables of all kinds to hit the auction block on Nov. 23

Some of the finest gems, coins, jewelry and more are set to go on the auction block at Western Asset Reserve in Henderson, Nev., on Nov. 23. And for those who can't make it out to the desert, iCollector.com will be holding the online auction, where bidders can purchase some of these marvelous valuables.

Jewelry auction
There are so hundreds of gorgeous pieces of jewelry available at the Western Asset Reserve auction, and bidders will be hard-pressed to decide which ones are the most exquisite. A 14-karat gold burma ruby and diamond ring (lot #866) is certainly one that will draw a lot of attention, as its sparkling sheen can practically be seen from miles away.

Then there's the pair of black rhodium sterling diamond earrings (lot #138) that will be up for grabs. The earrings, which feature 336 3.7-carat diamonds, would make an excellent complement to most any piece of formal evening wear.

A rare handcrafted natural Baltic amber with accent beading that was produced in Russia (lot #773) is one of the more unique and beautiful items that will be available on Nov. 23. Its creative blend of amber and beads evokes an elegant aesthetic that will surely turn heads whenever its worn.

Coin auction
Some rare coins join the gems and jewelry to make this collectibles auction truly noteworthy. Two 1955 Jefferson nickels with a double die error on the reverse side (lots #27 and 277) will be the rarest examples available on in November, but there are plenty of other pieces that will draw the eyes of numismatists.

An Indian cent from 1904 (lot #108) is another rare coin that stands out from the crowd with its red-brown luster. And a 1962 Benjamin Franklin 50-cent piece with double die and weight errors (lot #391) is another coin that will have collectors clamoring for more.

While it might not technically qualify as a coin, a rare 1862 stamp from Italy (lot #205), which came from a German collection, might interest numismatists, who often double as philatelists.

But those lots are just the tip of this valuable iceberg. With more than 1,200 items up for bid, the Nov. 23 auction will offer collectors a chance to sift through some of the most magnificent inventory to be found. And iCollector.com is the only place to find these valuables outside of the Henderson headquarters of Western Asset Reserve.
