An Evening with Fortuna & Belperron
Hosted by Eva Violante & Marina Vieira
It was an evening to remember as Gem X was invited into the Fortuna Auction House for cocktails and a chance to learn about the extraordinary jewelry of Bo Legendre. Highlighting her collection were rare pieces by Suzanne Belperron, one of the most celebrated jewelers of the 20th century. We got to know more about both these women and their jewelry. One of the standout pieces we tried on was a chalcedony “Cambodian” cuff, in the most lovely of blues. The evening was topped off by a brief presentation by Bo’s dear friend, jewelry historian and designer, Christopher Walling.
