J.K Rowling's Graff Diamond 'Waterfall' Earrings, together with a Signed Edition of 'The Christmas Pig' and Personalised Sealed Message from j.k. Rowling

Christie's presents Jewels Online: The London Edit, open for bidding from 6 to 16 June. The auction features a beautiful array of jewellery ranging from the early 19th century to present day, including a spectacular antique natural pearl and diamond brooch, alongside signed jewels from notable houses such as Garrard, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, Hemmerle and Bulgari. A pair of Graff diamond earrings, donated by J.K. Rowling, will be offered to benefit her children’s charity Lumos. The jewels will be on view at Christie’s King Street from the 7 to 15  June.  

The auction opens with a pair of impressive Graff diamond ‘Waterfall’ earrings (estimate: £30,000 - 50,000), offered on behalf of J.K. Rowling to benefit her children’s charity Lumos. The earrings will be presented with a signed edition of J.K. Rowling’s 2021 bestseller The Christmas Pig, in which a pair of diamond earrings feature, and a sealed personal message from the author to the successful buyer. Lumos is an international charity fighting for every child’s right to a family by transforming care systems around the world, working to end institutionalisation. Founded by J.K. Rowling in 2005 and named after the light giving spell in Harry Potter, Lumos sheds light on the root causes of family separation — poverty, conflict and discrimination — and demonstrates that children can safely be reunited with families.

Further highlights of the auction include a late 19th century pearl and diamond brooch (estimate: £70,000 - 90,000) dating to the 1880s, alongside a striking Art Deco ruby and diamond bracelet (estimate: £40,000 - 60,000), demonstrating the bold geometric designs of this defining era in jewellery.

A beautiful offering of signed jewels feature a Van Cleef & Arpels diamond 'Ludo Hexagone' bracelet (estimate: £30,000 - 40,000), circa 1940,  alongside a diamond necklace by Garrard showcasing a pear-shaped diamond of 4.78 carats (estimate: £170,000 - 220,000). A fancy intense yellow diamond ring of 12.56 carats by Ritz (estimate: £120,000 - 150,000) will also be presented.
