Extravagant jewels

Thursday, 2 December 2010

Decadent jewels with heritage, seem to be reaching record amounts at the moment. This Cartier bracelet, given to Wallis Simpson by Edward just reached the highest price of any Cartier item ever auctioned. I think it's the most stunning example of Cartier Panther jewellery.



This is the world's most expensive diamond. A pink diamond once owned by Harry Winston, it just fetched 46 million at a Sothebys auction.

This flamingo brooch was also part of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor auction. Designed by Cartier it is decorated with rubies, sapphires, emeralds, citrine, and diamonds.
This emerald, ruby and diamond heart was commissioned by Edward for Wallis Simpson for their 20th wedding anniversary and was also in the auction.

But if you haven't got millions to spend, don't worry! You can always treat yourself to one of our Bejewelled Anzu cards adorned with Swarovski crystals. Do email us at info@anzu.co.uk if you'd like to know where to buy one!
