Sale Overview

Power and sensuality, restraint and imagination: Christie’s Paris has become renowned for offering these qualities in its auctions of fine jewellery. With provenance from two Parisian private collections, the jewellery by Suzanne Belperron in the sale, at once generously shaped and carefully constructed, illustrates this balance. Her bold, instantly-recognisable style is exemplified by this sapphire and diamond Modèle à pois ring. Vintage signed jewels show a similar temperament, as with the Ludo bracelet, an icon of the house of Van Cleef & Arpels, and the Art Deco coloured diamond and diamond bracelet, a masterpiece created by the Viennese house of Köchert. Finally, the numerous diamond rings, of which the most exceptional is signed by Harry Winston and set with a 9.93 carat diamond, distil memories of the great families of France
