Jewellery from the private collection of Jackie Collins (1937-2015) comes for sale at auction next month, click here to view the full catalogue.
Most of the ten pieces for sale at Chiswick Auctions on December 6 were purchased by Collins in the last decades of her life while living in California.Unlike some of her famous showstopper pieces, these jewels were part of the author’s everyday style: less ostentatious diamond necklaces and earrings that would complement every outfit in her wardrobe. As estimates range from £200-900, they are potentially more obtainable than the jewels of most Hollywood starlets’ collections.
Head of Jewellery Department Sarah Duncan commented: “The world Jackie Collins wrote about in books such as The World is Full of Married Men or The Stud was all about glamour and exclusivity and these jewels allow her fans to take home some of her own personal glamour. We’re thrilled to be offering this collection of the late Jackie Collins’ jewellery as it represents what we strive for here at Chiswick Auctions, making fine jewellery accessible and celebrated for all.”
Jackie Collins’ jewellery forms part of a wider 180-lot offering of antique and vintage jewellery that is perfect for Christmas shopping. It includes pieces by iconic brands including Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Mikimoto and Van Cleef & Arpels alongside antique classics such as diamond encrusted Victorian jewels. And for those looking for serious carat weight, the auction includes a 5.59 carat square-cut diamond ring with a laboratory report from EGL (estimate £18,000-20,000) and a 4.01 carat brilliant-cut diamond ring with a laboratory report from the GIA in New York (estimate £20,000-30,000).
