Magnificent Jewels Part II Scheduled!

May 11, 2023

Christie’s- Geneva live auction, scheduled on 12 May to hammer; The World of Heidi Horten: Magnificent Jewels Part II. The World of Heidi Horten, a spectacular single-owner Jewellery Collection, offered at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva over a series of auctions in May and November.

Spanning from the 1970s to the current day, the collection not only comprises some of the world’s most precious diamonds and coloured gemstones but also includes the most exceptional curation of Bulgari jewels to have ever appeared at auction.

The sale also represents exceptional jewels by other famous Jewellery houses such as Cartier, Harry Winston, Marina B and Van Cleef & Arpels. Highlights include the Great Moghul carved emerald necklace by Harry Winston of 362 carats, a sensational rectangular-shaped diamond ring of 47cts and an elegant yellow diamond bracelet by Tiffany & Co.

This May, Christie’s is delighted to present The World of Heidi Horten—the unparalleled jewellery collection of the late Mrs Heidi Horten. The glorious assemblage comprises over 700 jewels, a true embodiment of Mrs Horten’s timeless elegance, glamour and taste for collecting. The collection is of impeccable quality and breadth, showcasing the art of jewellery in all its splendour.

The collection is offered as a sale series, beginning with The World of Heidi Horten: Magnificent Jewels Part I on 10 May, followed by a Part II auction on 12 May and an online sale, open for bidding from 3 to 15 May. From show stopping diamonds, rubies and jade to outstanding pieces from masters of a generation, including Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany, Harry Winston and Van Cleef & Arpels, the sales are poised to become the largest and most valuable jewellery auctions to date.

A second online sale will take place later this year offering the remaining jewels from the collection. As per Mrs Horten’s wishes, all of the Estate’s proceeds will benefit The Heidi Horten Foundation—established in 2021 to support The Heidi Horten Collection as well as medical research and other philanthropic activities that she supported for many decades.
