Yesterday, Wednesday June 6, Sotheby’s (New Bond Street, London) held their fine jewel auction. In two parts, as it was an auction with 350+ lots. We – a fellow gem enthusiast et moi – went along to wave our paddles (within reason). As well as experience the inevitable hair raising bid moments. Oooh not forgetting my attempt to pick my jaw off of the floor. As some lots fetched WAY more (and sometimes less) than my own personal estimations.
If you’re a regular here or on my Instagram (link) you know how I feel about Zambian emeralds! This splendid emerald and diamond ring was eye-wateringly splendid.
Elegant and understated tiara. One of my favourites I’ve tried on over the years :))
