Noble Jewels auction to take place in Geneva

Apr '08
Sotheby's forthcoming sale of Magnificent Jewels will take place in Geneva on Thursday May 15, 2008 at the Beau-Rivage Hotel. For the second consecutive year, a special session will be devoted exclusively to Noble Jewels.

David Bennett, Chairman, Europe and the Middle East, Sotheby's International Jewellery Department, said: “Following the success of last year's sale of Noble Jewels, we are very pleased to announce that our Spring Jewellery auction will be once again highlighted by jewels with noble provenance.

Sotheby's is continuing its long tradition of offering aristocratic jewels at auction, as with the sale of the Duchess of Windsor's collection in 1987, jewels from the princely house of Thurn und Taxis in 1992 and French Crown Jewels in 1997.

In November 2005, Sotheby's sold a Russian Imperial necklace that belonged to Empress Catherine the Great. In addition to the Noble Jewels section, the Spring sale will feature 64 pieces from the prestigious collection of Lily Marinho as well as important diamonds and precious stones from various owners. Enthusiasts and collectors of exceptional jewellery should, once again, find much to inspire them”.

Among the jewels of noble provenance to be auctioned in May are two very fine pieces from the Collection of Daisy Fellowes. Of American and French origin, Daisy Fellowes was born in Paris in 1890. From the 1920s onwards, she was one of the uncrowned queens of the social scene and a fashion leader.
