3rd September 2020 - Janie Ramsey, Antiques Jewels & Wardrobe of the Duchess of Windsor

Janie has previously owned an antique business but then she moved up to London to work at Sotheby’s. It was there in 1987, following the death of the Duchess, that her jewellery came up for sale reaching a then record total of $50.3 million which benefitted the Pasteur Institute in Paris. Much of the jewellery had been designed by the Duchess using previously used stones and there were many unique pieces. This talk is illustrated with slides and photos of many of the more iconic rings, bracelets & necklaces owned by the Duchess.
