A message from Sothebys
"Our galleries are now closed to the public but the building has never looked more beautiful thanks to our collaboration with collector JJ Martin, founder of fashion brand La DoubleJ, and so we wanted to share some of that beauty and creativity with you. In this video, specialist Kristian Spofforth gives you a private look at our current jewellery exhibition and introduces some of the highlights from our upcoming Fine Jewels sale (31 March - 7 April | Online). An array of stylish jewels features notable pieces by Van Cleef & Arpels, Paltscho, Masriera y Carrera and many more. The exhibition has been further enhanced by an imaginative collaboration, inspired by the sophistication, colour and vintage patterns of collector JJ Martin, founder of fashion brand La DoubleJ.
Owing to the instructions issued by the British Government on Monday 23rd March, today’s sale of Fine Jewels will now take the form of an online sale, running from 31st March – 7th April. Details of how to bid online are available here, but should you require further assistance, please do contact Maryam Taylor (Maryam.Taylor@sothebys.com). Similarly, Kristian Spofforth, head of department, remains at your disposal should you wish to discuss any of the material to be offered. Kristian can be contacted at Kristian.Spofforth@sothebys.com. With many thanks for your understanding."
