yeah I know
pity the Fabergé house doesn't exist any more.
I wonder if anyone is still capable of making such pieces nowaday's?

Quote
Martha Washington had two granddaughters and had given them each a watch with a watch face that had their name on it. She intended to give her niece, a Halyburton, her own watch, but one of the granddaughters (Martha Custis, but called Patty) begged to inherit her grandmother's watch, and so Martha asked younger Martha to give her own watch to the niece. This is why the "Martha Custis" watch was passed on to a Halyburton and to future generations through that family line. The Halyburton family held on to the watch until 1869, at which point they must have needed the cash so they sold it.

We have our history, too.  Kinda different, tho.  I'm fortunate to have my great-grandmother's gold pocket watch made in France.  Everything else was sold for wheat-seed and ended up being a huge success and saved the family.  We Americans are a practical bunch.   eating cookies

Something tells me that the royals might be bidders in this sale  Cool
If only for the Fabergé pieces (Charles is a collector AFAIK)
And I think HM might like some of the 19th century pieces  (that peridot and diamond set was sooo beautiful)
and best of all: the money goes to many good causes  thumbsup
Thanks for showing me those lovely things alex hug

I'd love to buy a jewel/s from one or more of the major auction houses.  I want to bling like QEII!

That's it! When the time comes, I'm going to ask not for an engagement ring (or an engagement car, or house) but for an engagement visit to a Christie's auction.

I swear I'm generally low maintenance, but I take my jewels very seriously.
