Marlene Dietrich's magnificent jewels auction at Sotheby's

The collections of Patricia Kluge, Ann Getty and the estate of Nancy M Daly will also feature

Sotheby's will offer three sessions of jewelry comprising a single-owner sale Always in Style: 150 Years of Artistic Jewels and Magnificent Jewels, on April 20.

The day begins with a comprehensive survey of period and signed jewels dating from the 19th century to modern day, and representative of the main design themes of the last two centuries.

Following, the Magnificent Jewels sale features important diamond and coloured stone jewels, many from distinguished private collections, including those of Patricia Kluge, Ann Getty and the estate of Nancy M Daly, as well as jewels formerly in the collections of Marlene Dietrich and Isabella Stewart Gardner.

Sotheby's will present magnificent jewels from the collection of Patricia Kluge as a major highlight of the April sale.

A Pair of Platinum and Diamond Pendant-Earclips (estimated at $600-800,000)

As in any great jewelry collection, at the core are her white diamonds including the impressive Pair of Platinum and Diamond Pendant-Earclips, set with almost 64 carats of pear-shaped diamonds (estimated at $600-800,000).

Fancy intense yellow diamonds along with suites of sapphires and of rubies are also featured in the glamorous Kluge jewels.

A Sapphire and Diamond Panthre Wristwatch, Cartier, French, circa 1985, (estimated at $100-150,000) speaks to Mrs. Kluge's sophisticated appreciation of workmanship and her refined taste.

These jewels will preview a unique joint sale offering of Albemarle House, the residence of Patricia Kluge, listed and offered currently by Sotheby's International Realty.

The interior contents will be offered in a Sotheby's house sale to take place on the grounds of the Charlottesville, Virginia estate on 8 and 9 June. An additional selection of Patricia Kluge's decorative jewels will be offered in June at Albemarle House.
