Cartier, Bulgari, and Van Cleef & Arpels will feature in the auction
It turns out Rosamund’s vintage collection is something we didn’t even know how badly we wanted. Jewellery collections from Cartier and Bulgari often make headlines at auction, but this time, it’s news of Rosamund’s vintage pieces that are captivating the world. Other vintage items for sale include pieces from Cartier, Buccellati, Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels and Boghossian. And while Christie has given no confirmation on the estimates for the auction, they have confirmed that a percentage of the proceeds from the auction would go to charity.
Rosamund has an incredible vintage jewellery collection
Rosamund’s jewellery has the kind of elegance that goes far beyond outfits. Her collection reflects her love for all things vintage. She has an affinity for diamonds, coloured diamonds, rubies, natural pearls, jadeites and emeralds. In addition, she likes to collect pieces from her overseas trips and get her jewellery designed by European designers.
Since she retired from acting, Kwan has taken a keen interest in investment in luxury properties. She is also the co-founder of Hong Kong-based beauty brand RK Beauty with fellow actress Helen Ma. Rosamund not only starred in countless movies, but she has always been a tireless campaigner for charity.
