T hroughout the years, Sotheby’s has had the great pleasure of selling some of the most important and exquisite jewels of noble provenance. Since pioneering dedicated Noble Jewels sales in Geneva in 2007, Sotheby’s has offered over 2,000 noble jewels for sale totaling more than $300 million.
2018 saw a blockbuster success with the sale of Royal Jewels from the Bourbon Parma Family, a historic record for a sale of royal jewels achieving $53.1 million with a 100% sell through rate including Queen Marie-Antoinette’s Pearl which sold for $36.2 million, a world record for a natural pearl.
Sotheby’s continues to be the only auction house to offer this unique selling and buying opportunity within the jewellery auction calendar. We are inviting consignments with noble provenance for the upcoming Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva 14 May.
