The Estate Jewelry Collection on El Paseo presents the Jim & Jackie Lee Houston Auction March 23-25, with a special preview event March 23 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
As entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Jim and Jackie Lee Houston were essential to many Coachella Valley nonprofits, including the McCallum Theater, FIND Food Bank, AIDS Assistance Program, Stroke Recovery Center, Angel View Crippled Children’s Foundation and many more. Many of their favorite pieces are on display at The Estate Jewelry Collection, worn at prominent events throughout the community.
“We are proud to share these treasured pieces and the special keepsakes of these iconic philanthropists who have made a meaningful difference in the Coachella Valley,” shares Lesley Grieve, owner of The Estate Jewelry Collection. “The Houstons were longtime clients and friends. One of the pieces up for auction is a stunning 45.76 carat diamond paved wristwatch originally purchased by Mae West from my mother in the 1980s and then resold through us to Jackie Lee in the early 1980s 2000. For us, this means that our customers continually buy and resell their classic and contemporary jewelery from us. This allows us to offer our buyers incredible savings when they add luxury pieces to their personal collection.
You can view and bid on Jim & Jackie Lee’s favorite watches, pendants and rings in store. A number of items are available for preview at www.EJCauction.com. Another exclusive and premium domain will also be included in the auction.
