Spectacular highlight from the upcoming Magnificent Jewels & Noble Jewels auction that will take place at Sotheby's Geneva next May 15 is this impressive emerald and diamond bracelet, circa 1930s, from the collection of the Marchioness of Londonderry. Mount Stewart (est. US$ 353,546 - 493,924).

Catalogue note: "The emerald Corrigan bracelet, so named in the Mount Stewart archives was noted for its central emerald of immense size that was understood to have been acquired by Cartier directly from an Indian Maharajah. Cartier’s association with India began as early as 1901 when they received a private commission from Queen Alexandra to reset Indian jewels in the Royal Collection for the Queen to wear with Indian gowns sent to her from Mary Curzon, the Vicereine of India. Jacques Cartier, the brother who ran the London branch visited India the year of the Delhi Durbar in 1911, in part as a buying trip, where he purchased many antique Indian jewels that they later sold both as antique jewels, as well as unmounting some items for the use of the principle stones."
