If diamonds really are girl’s best friend, this Cartier watch will be even better. The Cartier was part of a very limited production and is set with princess cut diamonds and has a estimate between 50 000 - 60 000 euros.

Here at Barnebys, we have special weakness for Patek Philippe, and HVMC does not disappoint. This cloissoné enamel timepiece was created in Geneva in the 1950s and is decorated in a marine theme, with water, sailboats, birds and blue skies. This unique model has a starting price att 60 000 euros.

Important Jewellery
Quantity and quality play equal parts when the Monte-Carlo Auction House presents their fantasy collection of 656 jewels. The collection has everything from Art Deco Brooches to carnelian jewellery. And many of the pieces are inspired by the animal kingdom.

We were especially mesmerized by this magnificent cocktail ring by Marchak Paris, estimated between 20 000-30 000 euros. The ring, with its diamonds, emeralds and intertwined threads of gold, was created in the 1950s - a real treasure.

Russian art

Just look at these impressive imperial snuff boxes. The boxes used to belong to tsar Nicholas II and has an estimate between 40 000-80 000.
