From Period Jewels to Belle Époque & Art Deco, bidders can expect to see jewels from Bulgari, Graff, and the likes
November 4, 2020: Auction house Christie’s is presenting a diverse array of jewels dating back from the late 18th century through to present day, from a group of Victorian insect brooches, opulent Belle Epoque and Art Deco jewels, bold yellow gold gem-set and enamel designs from the 1960s to 1980s, to a wide selection of signed contemporary pieces by the world’s most renowned jewellery houses including Bulgari, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Graff and Tiffany & Co.
The online auction, held between November 4 to 18, includes many exquisite pieces. An elegant Edwardian garland design tiara (estimate £45,000-65,000), an impressive Art Deco diamond and ruby cabochon strap bracelet by Drayson (estimate £40,000-60,000), a rare antique foil-backed diamond collar necklace with a detachable cluster pendant (estimate £100,000- 150,000), and a limited edition diamond ‘Crash’ bracelet watch by Cartier (estimate £40,000-60,000), are only a click away from anywhere from the world.
All the proceeds from the sale of the beautiful cultured pearl, diamond and enamel bracelet, formerly the property of the late Dame Vera Lynn (estimate £8,000-12,000), will benefit The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity. This special and highly personal bracelet was made in 2007 by the Queen’s Jeweller Harry Collins to mark Dame Vera’s 90th birthday. Dame Vera was known as Britain’s Wartime Sweetheart for being the symbol of hope and fortitude through her captivating songs. She created this charity in 2001, which has helped more than 600 families who have children affected by cerebral palsy.
