Aristocratic Jewellery

Check this article on FT Weeekend Magazine How To Spend It!

The upcoming auction of several pieces that belonged to the Duchess of Windsor puts antique jewels once more on the spotlight. Interesting to see how important jewellery collections are nowadays being curated and displayed at museums worldwide.

I particularly like the quote on how to value these pieces: the four Cs plus P (Colour, clarity, cut and carat plus provenance).
