Borsheims plans to exhibit about 50 jewelry pieces from Fred Leighton Jewelry at the annual Lauritzen Gardens Antique and Garden Show Sept. 26 through Sept. 29.

Leighton specializes in estate and vintage jewelry, including Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian-era pieces, as well as art deco and mid-20th century. Leighton is also known for outfitting Hollywood stars, such as Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker and Natalie Portman.

Interest in art deco jewelry is on the upswing and “it made sense to partner with Fred Leighton, estate and vintage jewelry provider to the stars,” Borsheims said in a press release.

All the jewelry on exhibit at the antique and garden show will be for sale, and many of the pieces have already graced the necks, fingers and ears of Hollywood stars on the red carpet, Borsheims said.

Borsheims' president and chief executive, Susan Jacques, a collector of vintage and estate jewelry, will be at the event to answer questions about the various pieces.
