A keen equestrian, Renée Louise Marie de Rothschild married former British Olympics show-jumping champion Peter Robeson OBE (1929-2018), and together they became racehorse trainers from their stud in Buckinghamshire, England.
A French 1930s platinum, sapphire and diamond bracelet is a highlight of the collection. It features sleek octagonal panels set with calibré cut sapphires and transitional cut diamond and baguette cut diamond set links, with French Platinum Poinçons. It carries an estimate of £15,000-£20,000.
Commenting on the collection, James Nicholson, Deputy Chairman, International Head of Jewellery, Silver and Watches at Dreweatts, said: “This delightful collection of 45 jewels and precious boxes gives a glimpse into how family jewellery collections come together over the generations, with pieces from different periods of jewellery design.”
