Christie’s auction of Magnificent Jewels on May 17 in Geneva will feature La Légende, a 92-carat D color Flawless heart-shaped diamond pendant signed by Boehmer et Bassenge.
The auctioneer will be putting 250 exceptional jewels on the block to a global audience. Among the diamonds and gemstones will be the Cartier and Art Déco collection assembled by Éric Nussbaum, one of Cartier’s most eminent experts. A particular focus has been set on Italian jewelry design from the 1900s to the present day in the dedicated Dolce Vita section, Christie’s said.
La Légende is a diamond and cultured pearl necklace set with a 92.15-carat heart shaped, D color, Flawless diamond pendant. Suspended from a cultured pearl sautoir, it has a pre-sale estimate of $14 million-$20 million and will be the largest D Flawless heart shaped diamond ever to be offered at auction.
