  1. Thanks for the info! Any idea who bought the Prince of Wales Feather Brooch? Rumor has it the British Royals wanted it back. Wonder if they got it? THX Mark

  2. Saw the jewels in NYC - amazing does not capture their beauty or opulence. I hope they are as enjoyed as Elizabeth Taylor did and not just to show off one's wealth. Christie's always takes an usurious cut on auction proceeds so here's hoping that AIDS research did not get screwed by Christie’s greed.
