Last week Wednesday, I made an announcement on Instagram.

💎ANNOUNCEMENT TIME💎… *🥁drumroll please🥁*
@chiswick_auctions cordially invited me to South Kensington for a private preview of their 20th November jewellery sale. 💫💎✨ I chose my top lots and tried on lots of phenomenal pieces (including the diamond bracelet, lot 201, photograph included below). It was magical! Thank you @sarah_j_duncan& your team of specialists 💎

My brow furrowed, I pursed my lips, which then turned into a smile. “What do you have in mind?” I asked excitedly… 💎 On a crisp Autumn afternoon, I was invited to lunch with @sarah_j_duncan 🥣🌱She’s the Head of Jewellery @chiswickauctions 💎❣️We discussed the darker side of our industry, as well as the shiny and sparkly side (technical terms). 🤩💍 Not forgetting favourite jewellers, 📚 recommended reading and I got to try on her ⌚️✨ @omega heirloom. Of course I said yes. We HAD to collab.

This is what Sarah had to say:

Maya had an exclusive sneak peek of our 20th of November Jewellery auction and has selected her Top Picks which I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks. Starting off with this très chic Chaumet necklace (lot 195, estimate £1500-2000) Keep an eye out for her favourites in our catalogue and online #comingsoon @chiswick_auctions
PS doesn’t the @chaumetofficial necklace look so fab with the @hermes scarf (in [last week’s] Fashion auction!)”
