HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE PIECES FOR THIS AUCTION?
The jewelry pieces presented in this sale are curated from our international clients, whom are collectors and appreciate the beauty of these pieces. Clients may by jewels because they meet a need and a desire to wear jewelry, but jewels are also a means to build a patrimonial estate, because they don’t loose value and are part of our history. Jewels reflect our clients: both travel across time and geographic spaces. Jewels are always spawned encounters, faraway travels and have always been the source of multiple influences. The pieces that we have selected reflect diversity in terms of taste and style, the jewelers’ creativity and the richness of our preferences.
HOW DO YOU BUILD THIS TRUST WITH YOUR CLIENTS?
I discovered the auction world when I was a child because my mother was an art amateur. I caught her bug! Art as a profession was clearly obvious to me. I’ve worked in Paris, New York and Genève. I studied art history at the Sorbonne and Gemology to the point of becoming a professor. But mostly I have worked with the best of the art world, especially in high-end jewellery and diamonds. I have never stopped learning, discovering and exchanging.
My guiding tools in life and my profession are my passion and sincerity.
I share immensely with my clients.
WHY SELL IN AUCTION HOUSE ?
An auction provides transparency. It reassures the seller who knows the final value of his/her piece.
The buyer has a maximum amount of information regarding the object: it’s authenticity, detailed description, sometimes it’s origin, and an evaluation of the price that we call an estimate and which serves as a guide int acquisition processus.
WHO ARE YOUR CLIENT ?
Each client is unique. We even have men who like to buy jewels.
We have noted that quality never leaves buyers indifferent and they recognized value at first glance. Elegance is not unique. All jewelry styles seek elegance.
The final client is the person with the greatest determination and love to bring out the jewel’s true beauty.
