Just when we thought all the hoopla over celebrity auctions was over when the mother of all sales, the jewellery and items of Elizabeth Taylor went under the hammer, there's more to come.
Christie's will also be auctioning off some of Lily Safra's baubles -- a very wealthy woman who married four times -- and amassed some gorgeous jewellery as well. It's a discerning collection of pieces that spans the late 18th century to today, with the highlight being 18 pieces by JAR or Joel Arthur Rosenthal. Seventy jewels are up for sale, and all the proceeds will benefit 20 charities she has chosen around the world and so the auction is named "Jewels for Hope".
Here are some of the highlights:
You'll have a chance to gawk at these amazing pieces yourself when they come to Hong Kong April 27 to 28.
