This blog is for curators of collections of fine jewellery and for anyone who enjoys finding unique and rare fine jewels; be it antique, estate, vintage jewellery or modern magnificent stones and designs. From a collector, investor or stylist point of view, these are the best pieces that I have found that are for sale in auctions and antique shops around the world. Ultimately it is for everyone who shares this passion.
This necklace was made by Van Cleef & Arpels in New York in 1949. It belonged to Eva Peron at the time when she was Argentina's First lady. It is displayed in the Personalities section at the Cooper-Hewitt exhibition and it now belongs to a private collector.
