"Please help support our local economy and your favorite dealers by participating in this auction," Maciejewski said.

With a pre-sale estimate of $4,000-$6,000, a dazzling Tiffany 14kt white gold and diamond ring is a strong candidate for top lot of the auction. The 1.2-carat diamond is beautifully set in 14kt yellow gold expandable shank. Also, a Potter and Mellen necklace, boasting 57 sterling silver 8mm hammered balls on an 18 inch strand, marked "925 Dobbs" on the clasp, should bring $250-$350.
