Each piece has a unique story to tell, and understanding the history behind these pieces can give them even more value and significance. At Sotheby's Paris, many of the pieces featured in The Luxury Edit have rich histories that are intertwined with famous figures and important moments in history. For example, a diamond and emerald necklace from the 1920s was once owned by the Maharaja of Patiala, one of the wealthiest men in India at the time. The necklace was later acquired by the French jeweller Cartier and has since become one of their most iconic pieces. Another notable item in the collection is a watch that once belonged to the legendary actor Steve McQueen. The watch was gifted to McQueen by his co-star in the film "Le Mans" and features an engraving that reads "To Steve – the best damn race car driver in the world. Neile." This watch is not only a beautiful and valuable timepiece, but it also has a personal connection to one of the most iconic figures in Hollywood history. These stories and connections add a layer of depth and intrigue to the already incredible pieces in "The Luxury Edit". For collectors and enthusiasts, learning about the history behind these pieces can be just as exciting as owning them.

Auctions play an important role in the luxury market as they offer a unique opportunity to acquire highly sought-after pieces that are often difficult to find elsewhere. In the world of high-end jewellery, watches, and luxury goods, auctions provide a platform for a diverse range of collectors, dealers, and enthusiasts to come together and bid on items that they may not have access to in their day-to-day lives. One of the key benefits of auctions is the transparency they provide. Auction houses such as Sotheby's Paris are renowned for their expertise and knowledge in the luxury market, and they provide detailed information on each item up for auction, including its provenance, condition, and rarity.
