A ‘Strata’ cuff, by Hattie Rickards, was also commissioned for the Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show in Cannes.

The jewellery is entered as Lot 48, Lot 89 and Lot 282 in Fine Jewellery – an auction extravaganza of luxury jewels, in Birmingham. The bangles have a total high estimate of nearly £12,000.

Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes Film Festival takes place each year to celebrate the world of film.

The ‘Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show’ was curated by Carine Roitfeld. It was for the 20th annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS benefit at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Roitfeld is the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and founder and editor-in-chief of CR Fashion Book.

The three renowned jewellers created their stylish pieces for the event. This was the first time that a catwalk show had been held alongside the charity fundraiser. Moreover, with a theme of precious metal, luxury jewellery brands from around the world designed pieces which were worn by the world’s most fashionable models.

The Auction

The cuff bangles have now been brought to Fellows to be sold in our Fine Jewellery auction.

Taking place on Thursday 26th May, Fine Jewellery is our flagship auction of jewellery. It contains jewels from renowned brands, such as Cartier and Tiffany & Co.

Viewing days will take place in Birmingham from 10am – 4pm on Wednesday 25 May and from 8:30am – 10am on the day of the auction.

Jewellery Department Manager at Fellows Auctioneers

Ben Randall, Jewellery Department Manager at Fellows Auctioneers, said: “Fashion trends come and go but a piece of good design and manufacture can show style at any time. We are very happy to have so many pieces that show a range of tastes in this auction.

“Our staff and clients have great fun trying on designer pieces that have been worn by models, jewellery from fashionistas or historical figures. If you can commission a piece yourself then I highly recommend supporting an artist. If your budget is a little lower at the moment, buying a signature piece from auction can be a much more affordable way of showing your taste.”
