The Millon House is breaking up a collection of oriental pieces including a beautiful Moroccan necklace from the early nineteenth century worn by the bride. For its part, Christie’s offers an exceptional collection of Art Nouveau and Art Deco pieces by René Lalique, Raymond Templier or Georges Fouquet. The sale of Mallié-Arcelin’s study is a tribute to the royal provenance of these bracelets adorned with miniature portraits of the last King of France and his family. The Sotheby’s and Christie’s sales in Geneva should make the event … One with the “Donnersmarck”, two daffodil diamonds of more than 102 and 82 carats, which belonged to the countess of the same name who was also a famous 19th century courtesan, the Païva. The other with the “Grand Mazarin”, a pink diamond of 19 carats. Firstly belonging to the Cardinal Mazarin, it then passed through the collections of four kings, four queens, two emperors and two empresses. It hasn’t reappeared for sale since the theft of the crown jewels in 1792. Records in perspective.
