Departures Style Director Alessandra Codinha Shops Sotheby's Jewels

Launch Slideshow

A s the current Style Director of luxury travel and lifestyle magazine Departures (and the former Culture Editor of Vogue.com), Alessandra Codinha has honed a deep appreciation for the world’s finest objects. Somewhere between jet-setting and taking care of arguably the world’s most photogenic golden retriever, Codinha found time to scour Sotheby’s December jewelry catalogues and select her favorite finds. “In this era of sustainability and responsibility, we’re all looking at what we consume differently,” Codinha, a firm believer in buying only what she loves, tells Sotheby’s. In terms of getting the most mileage out of luxury purchases, “it helps that jewelry this fabulous never goes out of style,” adds Codinha, referencing Sotheby’s Geneva and New York jewels auctions. “There are lots of great reasons to invest in fine jewelry, whether you view it as a future heirloom or an eye-catching way to elevate your wardrobe – but first and foremost the jewel should be something that delights you.” Ahead, discover the pieces from our upcoming sales that most delight Codinha. –Stephanie Sporn
