Highlights From Bonhams’ Upcoming Knightsbridge Jewels Sale


On July 10 in London, Bonhams is hosting its Knightsbridge Jewels sale with 228 fine jewelry lots that are as timeless as the international auction house itself.

Jewelry up for bid ranges in design from antique to art deco to contemporary and features gemstones—diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, rubies, and more—in every shade and shape. Many pieces were produced by well-known maisons such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co., and Boucheron.

The Knightsbridge location is one of more than a dozen Bonhams salesrooms globally. Established in 1793, Bonhams is a leading auction houses for jewelry, as well as fine art, antiques, and collectibles.
