Ambassador of Switzerland to Kuwait, Dr. Benedict Gubler, and the Directors of Sotheby’s Auction House hosted a reception at his residence on 31 October to celebrate the upcoming auctions titled ‘Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels’, which is slated to be held in Geneva on 13 November.
A select gathering of distinguished guests attended the function. Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador Dr. Gubler stated, “It is a great pleasure for me to welcome in Kuwait, Mr. Frederic Watrelot, Senior Watch Specialist, and Miss Daniela Maschetti, Chairman Jewelry Europe, from Sotheby’s Geneva, Switzerland. “
Introducing the prestigious brand, which contributes to developing the world’s art and economy, he noted that Sotheby’s Geneva has played host to sales of jewelry and watches for over 40 years.
Inviting the guests to enjoy the evening, the Swiss Ambassador quoted Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde who said, “Art for Art’s sake; art seeks to bring beauty into everyday life; art is a passage to a magical world. Having said so, I invite you all to enjoy this exceptional evening.”
A presentation was then held for those attending the event, which featured a range of magnificent jewels, noble jewels and important watches.
