The Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction on 14 May saw a masterpiece of Art Deco jewellery set a new benchmark for a necklace of this period at Sotheby’s Geneva. Created in the 1930s for Hélène Beaumont (1894–1988), an American socialite and close friend of the Duchess of Windsor the stunning emerald and diamond necklace fetched CHF 3,620,000 / $3,593,900 – more than double the price achieved when it was first sold at auction in 19941 (lot 448, est. CHF/$3–4 million). Click the image above to view the full list of top performing lots.
