Three distinct yet splendid Jewels from the collection of Kelly and Calvin Klein would be available for auction at Sotheby’s auction house on 4 December.
I consider you observant enough to realize the opportunity of bidding for the diamond gems viz. necklace, pendant and ear clips. Three of the precious ornaments were procured by Calvin for Kelly in 1987 at Sotheby’s auction of “The Jewels of the Duchess of Windsor” in Geneva.
What makes these pearls precious is the history attached to them. The natural pearl together with Cartier’s diamond necklace once given to the Duke of Windsor by Queen Mary. Containing 28 natural pearls, the beaming necklace is spherical in form with a diamond clutch.
Also available at the auction would be a pair of diamond ear clips by Van Cleef and Arpels. The estimated cost of all the ornamental accessories is valued at $2.2 million-$3.1 million.
Cartier’s natural pearl and diamond necklace: $2,000,000
Cartier’s natural pearl and diamond pendant: $400,000-$600,000
Diamond ear clips: $300,000-$500,000
Well to meet your window-shopping instincts before auction, the pearls would be displayed at the global pre-sale exhibition from 29 Nov- 4 Dec. centered in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States as well as Sotheby’s New York.
