I think the news article confused the upcoming auction of the items found in the Swedish embassy (Nov 30, 2009) and the Magnificent Jewels sale. The magnificent jewels sale offered a sapphire and diamond parure owned by Grand Duchess Marie Pavolvna Sr.

not confused, but there are TWO auctions.
 Sotherby's Geneve sold the saphire demi parure from Princess Nicholas
and some Faberge from Olga of Yougoslavia ( descents of Grand Duchess Vladimir) Nov 17th

and Sotherby's London is going to sell the Swedish treasure (mostly cuff links and cigret cases) Nov 30th

Royal Jewellery.... its really touch to make those. I read Jewellery Making Book By Jinks Mc Grath in that i read about the designing and the course of this but found very tough to do so. Creative persons can do this kind of stuff and specially royal jewellery needs to be very very attractive then one have to be wow about the stuff. I really appreciate this kind of things which made by superiors and looks superb.
