Christie’s Geneva Magnificent Jewels on tour before May auction
Geneva, April 2, 2017 – Christie’s auction of Magnificent Jewels will take place on 17 May at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva, where some 250 exceptional jewels await collectors from around the globe.
Ahead of the auction, highlights will tour to Hong Kong from 30 March to 2 April, followed by a stop in London from 10-12 April.
The jewels will be exhibited for a long stretch in New York, from 21-25 April and from 5-8 May alongside the 20th Century Art preview, before they return to Geneva.
The highlights on view will include a 92 carat D Flawless heart shaped diamond pendant, signed by Boehmer et Bassenge.
The Maison de Haute Joaillerie was launched last year and named in honour of Charles Boehmer and Paul Bassenge, Parisian jewellers of the 18th century.
Working exclusively with a handful of large, D colour, Flawless clarity diamonds of perfect polish and symmetry, combined with years of experience and preparation, the Maison Boehmer et Bassenge creates exceptional pieces of jewellery in honour of the craftsmanship of their eponym.
With an uncompromising attitude to quality, just a few pieces are produced each year. Having sold the first unique jewels in 2016, Christie’s will present two further pieces this spring in Geneva.
