Jim & Jackie Lee Houston’s Estate Jewelry Goes Up for Auction. Don’t miss the Special Preview Event on March 23rd from 5-7pm.

March 18, 2022

PALM DESERT, CA – The Estate Jewelry Collection on El Paseo is presenting the Jim & Jackie Lee Houston Auction March 23rd – 25th, with a special Preview Event on March 23rd from 5:00pm – 7:00pm.


As entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Jim and Jackie Lee Houston were vital to many non-profits in the Coachella Valley, including the McCallum Theatre, FIND Food Bank, AIDS Assistance Program, Stroke Recovery Center, Angel View Crippled Children’s Foundation, and many others. On display at The Estate Jewelry Collection are many of their favorite pieces, worn at premier events throughout the community.


“We are proud to share these treasured pieces and special memories of these iconic philanthropists who made a significant difference in the Coachella Valley” shares Lesley Grieve, owner of The Estate Jewelry Collection. “The Houston’s were long time clients and friends. One of the pieces up for auction is a stunning 45.76 carat pave diamond wristwatch originally purchased by Mae West from my mother in the 1980s and then resold through us to Jackie Lee in the early 2000s. It means the world to us that our clients continually buy and resell their classic and contemporary jewelry to us. This allows us to offer our buyers incredible savings when they are adding luxury pieces to their personal collection.”


You can view and bid on Jim & Jackie Lee’s favorite watches, pendants, and rings in-store. A select number of items are available to preview at www.EJCauction.com. An additional prominent, exclusive estate will also be included in the auction. Place your bids before March 25th at 4:00pm at The Estate Jewelry Collection, located across the street from the Apple store on El Paseo in Palm Desert.
