A First Look at Magnificent Jewels in Geneva | The Luxury Sales

Geneva | 14 May 2024

Geneva will be fizzing with excitement this May when a soon-to-be-announced historic jewel makes its appearance at Sotheby’s. This landmark offering in our Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction will be complemented by 46 highlights from an extensive private collection of signed jewels from across the twentieth century. Representing one woman’s passion for both the iconic and avant-garde, the collection is distinguished by one-of-a-kind pieces, many of which have been featured in museum exhibitions and scholarly literature.

More than 200 additional jewels from the collection will be showcased in a dedicated online sale, ‘Iconic Jewels: Her Sense of Style’, open for bidding 2 May to 16 May. The Magnificent Jewels sale will be completed by an exceptional group of Cartier animal jewels from several private collections as well as exquisite diamonds and coloured stones, many with noble and royal provenance.
