A few weeks ago you read all about my trip to the Magnificent Jewels exhibition viewing at Sotheby’s, and the results. Today the additional jewels I wrote about were sold at the Geneva Sotheby’s auction. Let’s find out what they went for!

Are you surprised by any of the results? These were all such gorgeous pieces, especially the necklace that was part of the Gina Lollobrigida collection. And the 1930’s bracelet I tried on had such intricate detail. These bidders are all taking home some amazing pieces!
P.S. Although I mention the name Sotheby’s a million times in this blog post, I was not paid or perked to write about this exhibition. I am simply a lover of gorgeous gems, especially the ones that I get to try on!
