Dix Noonan Webb has announced that an Art Deco cultured pearl and diamond bracelet owned by H.R.H. The Princess Margaret will be brought to auction on Tuesday 14 September 2021 and is estimated to fetch between £30,000 – £40,000.

Comprising a double row of cultured pearls bordering a millegrain-set line of circular-cut diamonds to a diamond and pearl openwork geometric clasp, it dates from circa 1925.

The September auction will also include an Art Deco aquamarine cocktail ring by Cartier, circa 1940, accompanied by the original hand drawn design options, and estimated at £4,000-6,000.

Frances Noble, head of the jewellery department and associate director at Dix Noonan Webb, said: “We are delighted to be selling this exquisite Art Deco diamond and cultured pearl bracelet which was formerly the property of H.R.H. Princess Margaret.

“The Princess was wearing this bracelet in the iconic portrait photograph taken on her 19th birthday by the Royal photographer, Cecil Beaton, at Buckingham Palace. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a very personal piece of Royal history with an impeccable provenance.”
