Full collection exhibited in Geneva from 3 November!

Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels Sales will take place from 6-8 November at the Mandarin Oriental in Geneva as part of Luxury Week, a twice-yearly, industry-wide seasonal series which Sotheby’s stages in Hong Kong, New York and Geneva – adding a unique mix of luxury sales including handbags and accessories to its flagship high jewellery and fine watches sales.

This season, the Noble Jewels sale stars an extraordinary single owner collection – Vienna 1900: An Imperial and Royal Collection – featuring dazzling jewellery of historical importance and museum quality pieces. Unseen for more than 60 years, these true treasures – encompassing over 200 lots spanning two centuries of European History – are from the most important Viennese Imperial and Royal jewellery collection ever to come to auction.

The Magnificent Jewels sale is headlined by important signed pieces, both vintage and contemporary, from Mughal-inspired jewels by Cartier to stunning evening jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels and high-impact designs by Boucheron and Bulgari. Rare historical jewels boasting provenances from the Savoy dynasty as well as the Maharaja of Nepal are featured in the Noble Jewels section, complemented by an impressive offering of tiaras dating from the late 19th to the early 20th centuries.

Also - exceptional gemstones take pride of place including the ‘The Blue Lagoon’, a 93.94- carat Paraíba tourmaline in a bespoke necklace by Adler, a 19.03-carat Kashmir sapphire and a 103.62-carat Fancy Intense Yellow diamond, all completed by a rich selection of blue, green, pink and pure white diamonds.
