Edward Lewis is perhaps best known as the producer of the Universal Pictures production Spartacus, which was nominated for six Academy Awards, six Golden Globe Awards, and a BAFTA Award. He produced Spartacus at the suggestion of his fellow producer and writer wife, Mildred Lewis. The upcoming California Jewels auction offered by Bonhams will present 38 jewelry pieces from the collection of Edward and Mildred Lewis. Particularly highlighted is a gold and diamond pendant necklace. The piece has a round brilliant-cut diamond in the center, mounted in 14-karat gold.
The auction will feature an array of jewelry. A toi et moi ring is a key highlight of the sale. Toi et moi, meaning ‘you and me’ in French, symbolizes two souls joining as one. Two stones, usually of similar size and cut, are set next to each other on the same ring while barely touching. The first toi et moi ring was popularized by Napoleon Bonaparte I when he offered his first wife, Josephine de Beauharnais, one such ring.
