Joan Rivers


We will be dedicating the month of June to Joan – in honor of her birthday on June 8th!


Christies: The Private Collection of Joan Rivers

Jun 16 – 23

As the first female host of a late night network television talk show; well-known for her co-hosting of E!’s Fashion Police and her acerbic but honest and clever remarks, the iconic native-New Yorker Joan Rivers stood for legendary entertainment and eclectic tastes. From her coveted collection of pieces from Fabergé offered in the live auction on 22 June, to this online selection, her collection show both sides of her personality: the exuberant energy and the refined connoisseur. The online auction features more of Joan Rivers’ personal jewelry, costume and handbags. Lots include a fine selection of Victorian enameled brooches, a selection of Iradj Moini necklaces, as well as pieces recognizable from Rivers’ red-carpet appearances, including couture by Vera Wang, Halston, Dolce and Gabbana, and Jean Paul Gaultier, and handbags by Chanel and Judith Lieber.

Collection on view at New York Rockefeller Center June 18-22.
Bidding opens June 16. Click here to register for the auction

“The first time I see a jogger smiling, I’ll consider it.”

“Don’t tell your kids you had an easy birth or they won’t respect you.

For years I used to wake up my daughter and say, ‘Melissa you ripped me to shreds.

Now go back to sleep.”

“I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking.”
