The Stax Hosts All-Female Jewelery Sale Sotheby’s Palm Beach

The Stax Advisory organizes an exhibition and sale of all-female jewelry for Sotheby’s Palm Beach, with a portion of the proceeds going to Mother’s Lovers Charity

Lifelong jewelry fans, the two friends and co-founders of The Stax Advisory, Victoria Lampley Berens and Laurel Pantin, created their full-service jewelry consulting firm in the spring of 2021, specializing in the search for spectacular vintage pieces. Lampley Berens has a background in public relations and design, and inherited her late mother’s love for vintage jewelry, while Pantin is a respected fashion and jewelry editor, with a seasoned eye for spotting trends and exceptional pieces.

Sotheby’s Senior Vice President and Senior Private Sales Specialist at Sotheby’s David Rothschild reached out when he spotted one of The Stax’s first Instagram posts, and the collaboration quickly evolved, with The Stax hosting a exhibition and sale of all-female jewelry at Sotheby’s Palm Beach, scheduled to take place April 4-10, 2022.

“It was a totally serendipitous twist of fate – my late mother lived in Palm Beach for a while and she loved jewelry. I wanted to start this business in her honor, so everything is going well in this partnership,” says Lampley Berens, who lost his mother to cancer five years ago.

Statement pieces with sparkling stones, as well as colorful earrings, pinky rings, bold chains and sculptural rings were particularly popular.

With the exhibition intentionally timed ahead of Mother’s Day in the US (May 8), Lampley Berens explains, “A driving factor in our curation has been bringing together a powerful group of women, all highly esteemed fine jewelry designers. , and to ensure a portion of the proceeds from the sale benefits a cause close to my heart. We have partnered with Mother Lovers, founded by my dear friend Paula Goldstein, a non-profit organization raising awareness of the maternal health crisis.
