Almost two decades ago, Bulgari established the B.Zero1 ring, inspired by the Colosseum in Rome. It was named B.zero1, to symbolise the “B” of Bulgari and the zero.1 of infinite beginnings. Its bold architectural design combines two established Bulgari motifs, the Tubogas, which originated in the 1970s and the double logo engraved in the band, turning it into an instant classic.

All creatures great and small. ‘The novelty of animals in jewellery has been ‘trending’ for centuries and the popularly is as strong today as it ever was. A jewel’s compact and wearable nature makes it the perfect way to carry your favourite little animal with you. Victorian jewellers in particular loved to feature animals and the symbolism they imbued in different creatures makes these jewels a unique and timeless companion.’ – Head of Jewellery, @sarah_j_duncan, explores the historical significance of animal jewellery through a selection of lots offered in #ChiswickLuxury Week.

As great grandson of King George II and financed by King George III to study at Trinity College, Cambridge, Prince William Frederick held the position of Chancellor at the university from 1811 and inherited the titles Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh and Earl of Connaught upon his father’s death in 1805. At the young age of thirteen, the prince began his career in the First Foot Guards and was promoted rapidly through the ranks, renowned for his bravery, and achieved the rank of Field Marshal in 1816 at the age of forty. The incongruity between his academic career and renowned lack of intelligence – he was known publicly by the nickname ‘Silly Billy’ – combined with a somewhat comical appearance made him a popular subject amongst the cartoonists and caricaturists of the age, including the renowned James Gillray.

Sourced from a noble collection, this rare enamelled gold box is an exquisite example of 19th century Jaipur’s enamel tradition. During a time when North India was under British rule and contact with the West became increasingly prominent, the Jaipuri craftsmen drew inspiration from enamelled and encrusted works of the Mughal past, whilst introducing their own designs. With translucent blue, green and red enamels, combined with kundan-set faceted diamonds, the box is adorned on the interior using a decorative technique present in several 17th-century royal commissions called partajikam, which consists of covering a chiselled gold surface, mostly worked in the form of thick foliage, with translucent champlevé monochrome enamel, often green.

‘It’s no wonder that such a delicate and intricate Qajar piece ended up in the hands of an Iranian art private collector and connoisseur for several years. The Easter egg-type of shape must have puzzled (and still does) a crowd not used to Iranian water pipes (qalyan), but the intricacy of the silver design and the vivid colours of the painted enamel medallions could win over any neophyte to the Iranian art world. From a wealthy merchant’s house in Iran to the Western art market, from an important European private collection to Chiswick Auctions, this qalyan has travelled extensively. One can only imagine the stories it would tell if it could speak.’ – Head of Islamic & Indian Art, Beatrice Campi discusses a highlight in the auction of Islamic & Indian Art including Fine Rugs and Carpets.
