Jewels Online: The London Edit

Sale Overview

Jewels Online: The London Edit will present a wide variety of period and contemporary jewels including a sapphire and diamond necklace by Harry Winston, an elegant Art Déco diamond bracelet by Cartier, an impressive 32.10 carat diamond ring by Cartier and a beautiful 1.02 carat oval-cut Fancy Vivid Blue diamond.

Further highlights comprise jewellery from two distinguished private collections.

Victoria, Lady de Rothschild was known for championing craftmanship and design and amongst her favourite jewels was a pair of smoky quartz and diamond cuff bracelets by Herz Belperron, circa 1995 now leading this section of the sale.  Other lots featured in this group are a Cartier Art Déco coral and rock crystal bracelet and a selection of large gemstone necklaces and sculptural cuff bracelets, many by Angela Pintaldi, which epitomise Victoria, Lady de Rothschild’s style (lots 91-137).

Jewels from the collection of Romana McEwen, née von Hofmannsthal, provide a fascinating glimpse into her taste and her family’s history. Many of the items were acquired to mark special occasions in her life and others descended from her forebears through her mother the American heiress Alice Astor. Amongst the lots offered are three Art Déco jewels by Cartier comprising a carved sapphire, emerald and diamond jabot pin, a nephrite, lapis lazuli and diamond bracelet and an important diamond bracelet depicted in an iconic studio portrait of Alice Astor taken in 1939 by Cecil Beaton (lots 206-226).
