The Duchess Of Windsor’s Jewels Sale: Photos Of Bling

by | 23rd, September 2010

THE Duchess of Windsor’s estate is selling off a diamond bracelet by Cartier, c. 1985, which is valued at £100,000 to £150,000. The woman who reduced King Edward VIIII to a Duke had some nice pieces.

The shiny things form part of a collection of the Jewels of the Duchess of Windsor at Sotheby’s in London.

Maybe, madam, prefers the gold and diamond necessaire du soir (if you have to ask it’s out of your league) which the Duchess of Windsor carried to a White House dinner with President Nixon in 1970 (valued at £50,000 to £70,000)? Or how about the ruby, sapphire, emerald citrine and diamond, Flamingo Clip, mounted by Cartier in 1940, which is valued from £1m to £1.5m? Or the emerald, ruby and diamond brooch, made to commemorate the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s twentieth wedding anniversary, valued at 100,000 to 150,000?

Or you can have the lot for a tenner and promise not to mention the war…
