For lovers of vintage jewels, but those that will never go out of fashion or even lose value, Thuesday 24 September, in London, the auction house Bonhams proposes some pieces that can entice collectors and lovers of fine jewelry. For example, a series of pieces by Van Cleef & Arpels that share a generous use of rubies are in the catalog.

Both sapphires come from Kashmir and have not been heated.
