Charlotte Casiraghi und Dimitri Rassam haben noch einmal „Ja“ gesagt, aber diesmal vor Gott, am  Samstag den 29. Juni 2019 in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.

Nach einer ersten zivilen Trauung in Monaco heirateten Charlotte Casiraghi und Dimitri Rassam religiös am Samstag in Saint-Rémy de Provence, wie die beiden vom Fürstenpalast veröffentlichten Fotos des Paares belegen.

Die 32-jährige Charlotte und der 37-jährige Filmproduzent haben in der Abtei Sainte-Marie de Pierredon geheiratet.
An der Zeremonie nahmen ihr  Onkel, Prinz Albert II. von Monaco, Charlotte Casiraghis Mutter, Prinzessin Caroline, ihre Brüder Andrea und Pierre und ihre Frauen, ihre Halbschwester Alexandra von Hannover sowie die Mutter der Schauspielerin Dimitri Rassam Carole Bouquet,teil.

Die Wahl von Saint-Rémy de Provence war für Charlotte eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Nach dem Unfalltod ihres Vaters Stefano, als sie erst vier Jahre alt war, lebten sie und ihre Brüder in dieser Stadt. Um der Zeremonie einen blumigen Touch zu verleihen, wurden den handverlesenen Gästen  die traditionellen gebundenen Lavendelsträuße angeboten.

Die Enkelin der Schauspielerin Grace Kelly, Charlotte Casiraghi, hat zwei Kinder, Raphaël Elmaleh, geboren 2013, Sohn von Gad Elmaleh und Balthazar Rassam, geboren 2018.

Royal Imperial Oranien-Nassau Jewels | Princess Heinrich of the Netherlands>>

Prince Henry of the Netherlands was one of the richest Princes in the world. A silver mine in America brings him a princely income and he has many Dutch, Russian and other bonds, with 99 properties in Holland – the maximum number, for the King alone can own 100 – and some in other countries.

His royal Bride has got the richest jewels …the oranien nassau diamonds….

As a gift from the Emperor and the Empress, the Princess Bride Marie, a 9-star brilliant tiara, is enough; the same is made by the court jewelers S. Friedeberg & Sons, after the diadem which Princess Elizabeth received during her marriage. According to the composition of the individual parts, 24 different forms, u. A. also representing a necklace, to be a masterpiece of jewelry.

By contrast, the very same jewelry gifts have been carried out by the same company in private compositions, which the prince Heinrich venerated his bride. It is a double jewelry: tiara, corsage and necklace in sapphires and diamonds, as in diamonds to wear.

The stones supplied by the prince are among the greatest rarities, and a large sapphire and a large diamond below are estimated at 100,000 each; the whole decoration has a value of more than 1 000 000.
The tasteful and dignified execution of the work is a high honor to our local arts and crafts. The prince has offered his bride, as a wedding gift, a wealth of diamonds and other gemstones, as he would seldom appear in such abundance and beauty even in princely weddings

The Berlin industry has been particularly honored to be entrusted with the creation of the jewelery, which was supplied by the court jewelers S. Friedberg Sons.
The whole Corbeille de mariage consists of a diadem, a corsage (big brooch), a necklace with 11 pendulum oques and an extension of the same to the corsage as so-called. Esclavage, which ends in two shoulder brooches.

This jewelery, made after drawings by Holbein, can be worn in two ways, with sapphires or all in brilliants.

The large sapphires and diamonds supplied by Prince Heinrich are among the rarities that hardly any of the most famous treasure troves in the world have.
The great sapphire of the corsage, weighing about 200 ct, of the most beautiful purest blue of more than 100,000 ct in value, is of no less beauty than a second sapphire cabochon of over 100 cts, which is matched by the five large sapphires of the diadem.
The large brilliants to be screwed in place of the sapphires, solitaires from 10 to 30 carats a piece, are of the purest water as they are brought to Brazil only in the earliest time to days.
All jewelry is protected from a value of one million marks.

50tes Jubiläum | Sotheby’s Germany

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anekdoten und Geschichten vermitteln einen kleinen Einblick in die tagtägliche Arbeit.

In ihren Blogbeiträgen feiern die ExpertInnen von Sotheby‘s das 50-jährige Jubiläum auf persönliche Art und Weise und blicken dabei auf legendäre Ereignisse und unvergessliche Momente zurück.

Manchmal können Märchen tatsächlich wahr werden.

Anlässlich des 50ten Jubiläums, kommen die schönsten Geschichten zutage; so beispielsweise vor vier Jahren, als die Expertin im Rahmen eines Schätztages in Deutschland während eines Haubesuches auf eine seltene und große, feuervergoldete Bronzefigur des Buddhas Vairocana stieß, datiert aus dem 15. Jahrhundert.
Wie sich zeigte, ist lediglich ein weiteres Exemplar dieses Modells aus dem 15. Jahrhundert bekannt, das sich in der Sammlung des Newark Museums in NewJersey befindet. Die aus einer deutschen Privatsammlung in die Pariser Auktion eingelieferte imposante Bronzefigur, geschätzt auf € 300.000-500.000, wechselte 2015 für sagenhafte € 3.4 Millionen ($ 3.85 Millionen) in den Besitz eines asiatischen Sammlers.

Erzählt werden möchte auch die Geschichte einer Familie, die einige Zeit nach dem Tod der Verwandten eine Zeichnung fand, jahrelang in einer Schublade unter Geschenkpapier verdeckt und sich nach der Begutachtung durch die Expertin als wahrer Schatz herausstellte:
Eine schöne Arbeit von Wassily Kandinsky mit dem bezeichnenden Titel Leise.
Taxiert auf£ 100.000-150.000erzielte die geometrische Komposition des Künstlers 2017 in London mit £ 308.750 mehr als das Dreifache des unteren Schätzpreise.

2003 besuchte der Experte  das Anwesen eines Adelsgeschlechts in Deutschland. In der Bibliothek bemerkte er eine schöne Tischuhr von einem der bekanntesten Uhrenhersteller der Welt – Thomas Tompion(1639-1713).
Obwohl sich die Uhr bereits seit Generationen an ein und demselben Ort befand, kannten die Besitzer nicht den Wert und rechneten daher nicht mit der damaligen Bewertung. 2003 erzielte dieses seltene Exemplar in der Auktion in London ein Ergebnis von £ 901,600 und avancierte zur damals teuersten jemals in Europa verkauften Uhr.

Wir gratulieren!!

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

Three clients from the region competed for the stone – testament to the strong demand for diamonds of this quality in this part of the world.

At 88.22 carats, this lucky stone now carries the name of the fortunate child whose father has chosen to give it her name. A happy moment in the journey of one of the earth’s greatest, oldest treasures

 

Finding a rough diamond that allows the cutter to fashion a stone of over 80 carats is a true and very rare discovery. The 242-carat rough stone which yielded the diamond was discovered in Botswana in the mine of Jwaneng, a mine owned in partnership by De Beers and the government of Botswana and known for producing roughs of the highest quality. Following its discovery, the rough was cut and polished over a period of intense months to produce a symmetrical and striking oval brilliant diamond. Given the elongated shape of the rough the oval shape was chosen to preserve the greatest amount of weight. Great skill and precision was needed to cut a stone of this importance – a level of expertise and craftsmanship possessed by only a small handful of cutters in the world.

 

A symbol of perfection and eternity, often associated with prosperity, the number eight is considered a lucky number in China and other Asian cultures. The Chinese pronunciation of 8 (bā), similar to that of 發 (fā) meaning wealth or fortune, is welcomed as a blessing of affluence. In its duality – 88 – it is believed to bring good wishes in abundance. There is also a visual resemblance between 88 and 囍 (literally: „double joy“), a popular decorative design composed of two stylized characters 喜 („joy“).
