Phillips To Launch Jewellery Auctions In Geneva

Phillips announced to introduce its inaugural auctions of jewellery in Geneva beginning in November 2023. The auction house’s jewellery department achieved historic annual sales totals in 2021 and 2022, with an impressive 185 percent increase in value during Fall 2022 compared with Spring 2022.


According to Phillips, the decision to hold jewellery auctions in Geneva follows in the wake of the strong results achieved in Phillips’ jewellery auctions in 2022, and further affirms Phillips' international investment in the category, now spanning across the Americas, Europe, and Asia. With its rich heritage and reputation as a global hub for luxury and collectibles, Geneva serves as an ideal location for the auctions, attracting collectors from around the world.


The inaugural Geneva auctions will take place on 6 November and the presale exhibition will go on view in the week preceding the sale from 31 October to 5 November. The auctions will include a various owner auction and the auction of a remarkable private collection. The various owner auction will feature splendid diamonds and gemstones and an impressive selection of vintage and modern jewels by renowned houses such as Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. The private collection includes an array of exquisite and precious Art Deco objects featuring renowned names and beautifully showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship and diverse aesthetics of the period. The collection will be exhibited alongside other auction highlights in several locations, including Paris, London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taipei, inviting collectors and enthusiasts to witness these remarkable pieces firsthand.


The private collection of Art Deco objects included in the Geneva auction this November features over 120 lots, meticulously assembled over time and highlighting the splendour of the Art Deco era. The rarity and significance of this collection cannot be overstated, as it encompasses a remarkable array of boxes, vanity cases, timepieces, and objects from prestigious names such Tiffany & Co, Boucheron, and more. The estimates for these pieces range from no reserve to CHF 100,000 ($116,400), offering a broad spectrum of price points for collectors.


Benoît Repellin, worldwide head of jewellery at Phillips, said: "We are privileged to bring such a rare and comprehensive Art Deco collection to the market. This lovingly assembled collection pays homage to the discerning eye of the collector, who thoughtfully selected the finest jewellery houses and designers of the Art Deco period, capturing the diverse styles and trends of the era, from elaborate and bejewelled designs to those with clean lines and geometric forms by Jean Després and Raymond Templier. We are excited about the continued growth and expansion of our Jewels department, and we look forward to presenting these extraordinary pieces to collectors and connoisseurs."
