Diamonds and jewels of greates Maison: in Milan, not to be missed with Bolaffi ♦ ︎
Jewelery auctions, mon amour: exceptional sales of pieces get dreams to collectors (and wallets) and to enthusiasts. For those who do not withstand the charm of vintage jewelery and diamonds, on October 3, in Milan, Bolaffi is planning a new auction. Star of the day is a rose diamond mounted on a ring. The stone, called fancy light pink, has 3.66 carats, IF purity and an auction base of 360 thousand euros. Lighthouse also lit on an emerald cut diamond of 5.29 carats, D color, purity VVS2, with base 130 thousand euros.
But the auction also includes a Kashmir sapphire and jewels signed by big Maison like Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels, Schlumberger for Tiffany. At the Grand Hotel et de Milan, auction site, there are 478 lots of jewels, preceded by a sale dedicated to watches. Among the stones in the catalog are also a Colombian emerald of 4.31 carats and a Kashmir sapphire sap with no sign of heating, with platinum and diamonds, dating from the 1920s. “With its velvety, intense and unique color, Kashmir is the most sought-after and appreciated among the sapphires,” explains Maria Carla Manenti, an expert in the jewelery department. “When it comes to sapphires, this is the gem to refer to”.
