The Art of Giving: Sotheby’s is honored to have hosted a private cocktail reception attended by the world-renowned Yo-Yo Ma, whose efforts through his Silkroad Project continues to foster multicultural artistic exchange. Guests at the event were dazzled by a glittering array of jewels designed by Anna Hu for Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite Autumn Sale. For her five-piece Silk Road Music Collection, Hu took inspiration from the musical and cultural legacy of this ancient network that had once linked the East and the West. The gathering was transported back in time to China’s rich cultural history, from the spellbinding performances to the diamonds that conjure up silhouettes of traditional musical instruments.
