Duchess of Windsor Jewelry Back on Auction
31.10.2010 § Leave a comment
Twenty three years ago Sotheby’s celebrated the fantastic Jewelry collection of the Duchess and Duke of Windsor during a historical auction at the Hotel Beau Rivage in Geneva. On the 30th of November, this time in London, 20 pieces of the same collection will reappear for an exceptional jewelry sale. Here are my favorite:
The Onyx and Diamond Panther Bracelet, Cartier, Paris, 1952
Jewels like this Gem-Set and Diamond Cross Bracelet made by Cartier (1934-1944), are the reason why jewelry will never stop amazing me. Each of the eight crosses are inscribed to remind and symbolize important events in Wallis Simpson & Edward VIII life together. And what a life those two had! One way or another we are all in search for beauty, but it is because jewelry always has history and meaning that we give it such importance. Because it is a symbol!
