Fabergé watches were included in a set of ultra-rare gift boxes that were auctioned to launch Legado, described as the newest and most luxurious cigar brands from Barbados.
The cigar brand is the brainchild of Rorrey Fenty, brother of Robyn Fenty, better known by her middle name, Rihanna.
A private event for 200 guests in London, which was attended by Rihanna, saw four gift boxes designed by Gemma M. de Ana sold for between £800,000 and £1.2 million.
They included Legado cigars, Rome de Bellegarde cognac and limited edition timepieces by Fabergé.
Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, Director of Sales at Fabergé, introduced the auction, saying: “Time is the literal and symbolic theme of this evening.
“Time unifies the three brands tonight.
“All our products stem from decades, and even centuries of carefully evolved and advanced expertise.
“The success of crafting excellence is not a quick process”.
