The online sale also offers a selection of 25 watches, incorporating the most reputable brands, with internationally sought-after models such as the Rolex Daytona, Rolex Submariner or vintage Patek Philippe wristwatches.

From Franca Valeri’s collection come a leading jewellery piece, a sapphire Trombino ring made by Bulgari in the 1970s. The Trombino (translated as ‘little trumpet’) is one of Bulgari’s most successful and long-lasting designs. The first model appeared in the early 1930s and was instantly popular because it allowed the gemstone to stand proud. The shank of the Trombino ring was a broad band of pavé-set diamonds graduated to a horizontal line of baguette-cut diamonds. The example in the sale is a cabochon sapphire Trombino ring weighing 11.9 cts, estimated at €6,000-8,000.
