Mark your calendars for May 16, when Adam’s Fine Jewellery and Watches auction will take place …
Cork-born Sarah Greene has been busy. Not only has she appeared in hit shows including Bad Sisters, Normal People, and Penny Dreadful, she also enjoyed a preview of Adam’s Fine Jewellery and Watches auction on May 16. She tried on a selection of jewellery with Claire-Laurence Mestrallet, head of Fine Jewellery & Watches which you can watch online. Her favourite piece was this gorgeous ring, while Claire-Laurence also selected some of her favourite pieces below:
LOT 128: A GEM-SET ‘PANTHÈRE’ COCKTAIL RING, BY CARTIER, 2015
Sarah says, “I mean, what’s not to love about this iconic ring. It weirdly gave me a sense of power when I tried it on. It’s super sexy and strong.
