More than 200 jewels will be going under the hammer, including antique jewellery and vintage watches.

Among the exceptional pieces, are two jewels which particularly caught our attention: a rare Mogok Pigeon's Blood ruby of Burma and a 5.5 carats Kashmir royal blue sapphire ring, both without heat treatment.

Ring in white gold 750, adorned with an exceptional and extremely rare ruby: "Sang de Pigeon", cushion size of 5.52 cts Ring in white gold 750, adorned with an exceptional and extremely rare ruby: "Pigeon's Blood", cushion size of 5.52 cts

The ruby is accompanied by four Swiss and American certificates (Gübelin, SSEF, GRS and AGL) which stipulate its colour specimen "vivid red" type "Pigeon's Blood", without thermal treatment and verify that it has come from the Mogok mines which were exhausted years ago.

The rubies of Mogok are known to be the most beautiful in the world and this unique ring will in no doubt attract buyers from around the world.

The sapphire ring is also accompanied by three Swiss certificates (Gübelin, GRS and SSEF).

The blue sapphire of Kashmir remains the most sought after of their kind, its deep blue colour is intense and velvety, not easily found on the market and highly popular.

In addition to these two exceptional rings, pieces by Chopard, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, Bulgari and more will also be coming up for auction.
