Fine Jewels & Watches including – Worn at The Ritz: A Private Collection from a High Society Family
24 March 2019, 2pm

Webb’s is proud to present “Worn at the Ritz, A Private Collection from a High Society Family”. A collection which has not only withstood the test of time from

a taste perspective but has also narrowly escaped being lost, or worse, destroyed during the onset of World War II and then locked away
in a bank vault for over half a century.

The collection of 128 pieces curated down to 77 is the one of the largest and most important single owner jewellery collections to emerge onto the New Zealand market in recent years. The collection contains the finest examples of Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco craftsmanship combined
with several significant and important pieces.

It is unlikely we will see such an important collection in the New Zealand market again, fortunately with such a range of price points
there truly is something for every collector.

Our quarterly sale also includes a superb collection of antique jewellery, coloured stone creations and classic and contemporary diamond pieces.
To be presented alongside a selection of fine timepieces from internationally renowned brands such as Cartier, Omega and Rolex.

Lots marked with an asterisk (*) in this catalogue are included in the
Worn at The Ritz Collection.
