We’ve only really scratched the surface of the astonishing jewelry collection that was recently auctioned at Sotheby’s. Today, let’s take a closer look at the dynamite diamond and pearl corsage ornament from the sale.
Last week, the hammer fell on the sale of a remarkable collection of jewelry linked to the former royal family of Württemberg and their close relatives, the Habsburgs. Among the pieces were two lots of diamond star jewelry, part of a fad popularized at the nineteenth-century imperial court in Vienna.
This week, Sotheby’s is auctioning off a truly magnificent gemstone: a blue diamond sourced from the same mine as some of the greatest royal diamonds in the world.
