Just in time for the holidays, Sotheby’s final jewellery auction of the fall season will be held in New York on 9 December 2015. A number of treasures will be auctioned in a sale which will offer more than 500 lots with estimates starting at $5,000. Perfect timing to pick up your Christmas gift?
Let us check this very nice video by Frank Everett, Head of Sales Jewellery at Sotheby’s New York, to see if there is anything steeling our heart:
Going with Lisa Hubbard, Co-Chairman of Sotheby’s Jewellery Division, North & South America:
If these jewels could talk, what a tale they would tell: an iconic Art Deco diamond necklace made in 1939 by Van Cleef & Arpels for Queen Nazli of Egypt, and an avant-garde creation made by designer Suzanne Belperron circa 1935 for Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor for whom King Edward VIII gave up his throne. The rare combination of superb original design with romantic provenance is irresistible to lovers of fine jewels, and we are thrilled to present them to collectors this December.
Here are the fabulous highlights of Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels auction.
