Louise Gréther’s selection

Dazzling diamonds, rare pocket watches, an irresistible ladies’ watch selection and a colourful selection of Hermès vintage bags are among the star lots presented in our prestigious Monaco winter sales. Louise Gréther, the director of our Monaco office, picks out her favourite pieces:


In our jewellery catalogue I have my eye on a number of pieces but can’t help having a soft spot for those pieces that have been consigned in our Monaco office. The dazzling “collier rivière” necklace (lot 615) makes a sensational piece for a special soirée.


René Boivin
“Ombelle” brooch
Estimate: €30,000 - 35,000
Auction 15th January 2020 - 2pm

My favourite lot in this sale has to be this René Boivin ‘Ombelle’ brooch that is just ravishing: The stamen part of the flower literally trembles when the wearer moves and it’s simply a masterpiece of jewellery art. René Boivin pieces are well known for their impeccable craftsmanship and are very sought after these days at auction so I am sure this stunning lot will attract lots of keen bidders on 15th January.


If you are looking for a simpler piece, there are plenty to choose from like these elegant and affordable diamond bracelets that will jazz up a simple outfit in an instant, lot numbers 467 and 484.


I also love the mother of pearl Alhambra necklace by Van Cleef and Arpels that is such an elegant and timeless piece: lot number 299.










Cartier Panthère
Panthère, n° 8057915 02095
A 18k yellow gold, enamel and diamond set quartz lady's wristwatch, gold bracelet with deployant clasp signed
Estimate: €8,000 - 12,000
Auction 16th January 2020 - 2pm


Le Temps est Féminin
“Leafing through our ‘Le Temps est Féminin’ catalogue (Ladies’ Watches) it is very difficult to choose a favourite! There are so many exquisite and original pieces. I’m a great fan of Piaget and there are lots of wonderful models to choose from in this sale – my Piaget favourites are lots 802, 816, 890.


However, the gold Cartier Panthère with diamonds and enamel spots is a seriously cool watch and a guaranteed eye-catcher. It’s an iconic piece from Cartier that has a masculine feel to it and is a cross between a dazzling jewel and a watch:

















Hermès Sac Constance
Constance 24, 2014
Estimate: €15,000 - 25,000
Auction 16th January 2020 - 11am

Hermès Winter Collection
I love this elegant and stylish bag in beautiful midnight blue that is both functional and elegant. The Constance is a highly sought after model these days with its signature front clasp and design that can be worn across the body for a sporty look or over the shoulder. The size is absolutely perfect and it’s so easy to wear. This particular model is in very good condition and would make a great addition to any wardrobe.”
