Her life story was largely covered in the press, and when Wallis Simpson married the abdicated King Edward VIII on June 3rd, 1937, millions across the world held their breath as they were glued to the radio. The love story of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor was told through her magnificent jewels as seen in the memorable auction at Sotheby’s after her death, a collection which included her famed wedding band inscribed ‘eternity’ the inspiration for the Calvin Klein fragrance. Yesterday, Christie’s offered a bracelet realistically modelled as a tiger by Cartier in 1956 with a matching clip brooch, once belonged to the Duchess and more recently to Sarah Brightman; some of the proceeds from the sale will be gifted to the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. Priced realized: $3,201,852. The power of provenance.
