Inspirational Living: The Spirit of the Rose | Where Diamonds Meet Dance and Fashion


Ahead of our upcoming sale of the ‘The Spirit of the Rose’ (11 November | Geneva), we asked former Vogue editor and fouder of CR Fashion Book, Carine Roitfeld, to style a modern day performance of the classic ballet ‘Le Spectre de la Rose’ after which the exceptionally rare Purple-Pink 14.83 carat diamond takes its name. In this webinar, get an exclusive look at the performance and hear Carine Roitfeld in conversation with Tamara Rojo of the English National Ballet, dance writer Ismene Brown and our Head of Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels, Benoit Repellin. Together they explore the story of the original Russian ballet, which revolutionised 20th century art, theatre and fashion. Click here to watch more Sotheby’s videos.
