Christie's recently announced its upcoming sale, The Magnificent Jewels of Anne Eisenhower. Anne was an American interior designer based in New York City. She was also a collector, philanthropist, icon of sophistication and member of one of the most pre-eminent American families. She was known for her classic aesthetic, designing interiors with whimsical touches that reflected her inner self: impeccably stylish and thoroughly charming, true to her values and creativity.

As a tribute to Anne, Christie's will launch a global tour of the collection beginning in Los Angeles and continuing in Paris, Geneva, and Hong Kong. The full collection will culminate in New York on June 7 and will be sold in a live and online sale during Christie's Luxury Week.

This assemblage of jewellery demonstrates Anne's sophistication and appreciation for both the allure and art of jewellery design. A star lot of the collection is the iconic ‘Jarretiere’ ruby and diamond bracelet, acquired by Marlene Dietrich in 1937 from Van Cleef & Arpels. It was worn by the actress in Alfred Hitchcock's 1950 murder mystery Stage Fright and was purchased by Anne in 1992 - making its way from one iconic collection to another (Estimate $2,500,000-4,500,000)

Additional highlights include a variety of magnificent jewels, including: a rare Art Deco Diamond and Multi-Gem 'Moonlight Rose' Bracelet, by Tiffany & Co. (Estimate $500,000-700,000), an Art Deco Diamond Bangle Bracelet, by Cartier (Estimate $150,000-250,000) as well as an Important D colour Diamond Ring of 20.54 carats (Estimate $1,200,000-1,800,000).

The live sale will take place on June 7 with additional jewels offered from Eisenhower's collection to be featured in Christie's Jewels Online open for bidding May 30 and closing on June 8.
