Autumn Highlights from the Bonham's Saleroom
Hosted by Bonham’s UK Jewellery Director Emily Barber
Gem X London, got the chance to see a few highlights from the Bonhams (@bonhamsjewels) Sale up close before they hit the auction block. We spoke with Bonhams UK Jewellery Director Emily Barber (@gemilybarber), about the special pieces being sold in today’s auction. We were delighted to see two Gem-set Turtle brooches, a Rock Crystal “Pool of Light” Parure, and a playful Dog Brooch by Boucheron.
We were also able to see a rare multigem-set and enamel Maltese cross cuff by Verdura for Chanel, circa 1930. From the collection of Helen Hayes McArthur, known as the “First Lady of American Theatre” and first woman to receive an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony). An absolute feast for the jewel-loving senses!
