Jewels Online - Extravagant Parures


3 Nov - 17 Nov 2020

Sale Overview

Joseph Marconi, director of Marconi Genève, began his career in the Geneva jewellery and watches industry in 1970. One of the personal jewellers to Qaboos bin Said, the ex-sultan of Oman, Marconi has for years been creating these exceptional parures for Royalty across the Middle East. Today, with 50 years’ knowledge and understanding of the industry, Marconi has successfully built his renowned jewellery business on Rue du Rhône Geneva, showcasing truly extraordinary pieces. Marconi’s dedication and exquisite attention to detail in creating his traditional and luxurious designs will be evident to viewers in our upcoming online sale.

This November, Christie’s Extravagant Parures Online auction is honoured to have the opportunity to present 43 parures by Marconi Genève - all in one sale for our Jewellery lovers. This curated, online-only Geneva auction celebrates this collection, offering exquisite parures crafted using the ‘big three’ gems: emeralds, rubies or sapphires, all set with shimmering diamonds.


The pre-sale exhibition of our jewellery and watches auctions are now moved to our office at 8 Place de la Taconnerie, 1204 Geneva. We remain at your disposal via email, or telephone, for appointment to view the selection privately.
