Magnificent Jewels

Geneva will be fizzing with excitement this May when two, soon-to-be-announced historic jewels make their appearance at Sotheby’s. These landmark offerings in our Magnificent Jewels auction will be complemented by an extensive private collection of signed jewels from across the 20th century. Representing one woman’s passion for both the iconic and avant-garde, it is distinguished by one-of-a-kind pieces, many of which have been featured in museum exhibitions and scholarly literature. The sale is completed by highly important diamonds and rare colored stones, including Kashmir sapphires, no-oil Colombian emeralds and Burmese rubies.

We are currently welcoming consignments for this auction. Should you wish your jewel to be featured at Sotheby’s this season, please contact our Jewellery specialists for a complimentary valuation.
