Of course these objects are of great value and less “next door” than what I usually introduce to you. But I want to take this opportunity to share with you my passion, to make you dream and why not inspire you by giving you ideas of jewelry styles to wear.
It seems that magic does not exist, that certain “impostors” played tricks on us. That from our earliest years, we were lied to, we were recited tales that lulled us into disillusionment. What a sad reality isn’t it?
Well let me tell you a secret, it appears that real “Merlins” live among us and they are called “Jewellers”.
Everything began on the 9th of November, I went to Geneva, specifically at the Hotel des Bergues, during an auction organized by the big house “Christie’s”. Their press officer welcomed me with open arms, and presented me a multitude of ornaments, each more beautiful than the other. The room shone a thousand lights or rather a thousand pieces!
Diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies as far as the eye could see !!!
There was, incredible mechanisms and precious stones of immeasurable size.
Accompanied by my photographer, I had the chance to try on some of these wonders.
