Sotheby’s is kicking off the summer months with a trio of fine jewellery auctions. The first of these, London’s Fine Jewels sale, was held today in the United Kingdom and was led by a Cartier necklace featuring a 20.30-carat diamond.

Up next is the Fine Jewels sale in Geneva, bound for Switzerland on June 14. This auction brings with it a range of valuable diamond and gemstone pieces, including a pair of yellow sapphire dragonfly brooches expected to sell for up to $19,800. The sale will also feature gold and pearl earrings by Chaumet and a Burmese ruby and diamond ring, with anticipated prices ranging up to $5900 and $120,100, respectively.

Concurrent with these sales runs the Jewels Online auction. Interested parties may bid digitally between June 5 and 15 on items including an art deco diamond brooch from the 1920s and cufflinks in both sapphire and lapis lazuli.
