An important assemblage of extremely rare, museum-quality gems at auction.
Guernsey's will be conducting a totally unreserved Auction of a thousand of the Blues great's most treasured possessions. A public Preview will be taking place live at the Gibson Brands New York Showroom, the guitar maker which created B.B's beloved instruments.
In 1990, in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, Jarvis Wayne Messer, a man of modest means, made an unprecedented discovery of four breathtaking, museum-quality star rubies. More than twenty-five years later, Guernsey’s, on behalf of Mr. Messer's family, will have the privilege of offering these stunning gemstones at auction.
