Twice a year, storied auction house Sotheby's holds Magnificent and Fine Jewels auctions in New York. And oh, what a fabulous time it is. Little known secret: if you happen to be in New York in the days leading up to the auction, you're actually welcome to visit Sotheby's, ogle the jewels, and yes, try them on. It is truly delightful.

That magical time is now — the auctions are on April 17, and from April 12th through the 16th, jewel-obsessed members of the public (hi, hello, me) can visit the lots and give them a little TLC.

This season's sales are particularly exciting, however, because InStyle's very own Editor-in-Chief, Laura Brown, was selected as the official tastemaker of the auctions. To celebrate, Sotheby's invited her in early to fondle some rare, mindblowing pieces and style them her way for a very fun editorial.

Here are some of her favorite pieces that are up for auction. To see the full story, peruse all the lots, and plan your trip to "get frosted," visit Sothebys.com.
