Pink and blue colored diamonds, large jewels, sapphire brooches and, of course, jade jewelry at Christie’s auction in Hong Kong ♦ ︎
Magnificent Jewels in Hong Kong on May 28th. Under the lens of enthusiasts, a collection of jewels and stones with a particularly lively character is outlined. Starting with the 3.01-carat pink diamond mounted on a ring signed Moussaieff and estimated at between 6 and 8 million dollars. And for those who do not like pink, here is the ring with a fancy vivid blue diamond of 3.01 carats, estimated between 4.7 and 7 million dollars. In large Asian auctions, pieces of large precious stones are never missing. And here is the Grand Muzos, a pair of earrings with natural Colombian emerald of 23.34 and 23.18 carats respectively, which according to experts are worth between 3.8 and 6.5 million dollars. The name Grand Muzos comes from the area of Muzo, Coscuez and Chivor in Colombia, source of the best emeralds in the world.
At Hong Kong auctions, jade jewelry, the most loved stone in Asia, it’s a must. In this case the catalog includes a necklace of jadeite beads (2-3.2 million dollars) and a jadeite cabochon ring (580-800.000 dollars): the stones have saturated colors and transparent crystalline structure.
Among the jewels of the great European Maisons, a Bulgari necklace of diamonds, with a blue-green diamond, is valued between 1.6 and 2.3 million dollars. Finally, Christie’s highlights the importance of an untreated Kashmir sapphire brooch with 26.42 carats (4-6.5 million). In Kashmir the finest sapphires have been found (the mine is now exhausted), adored for their rich cornflower blue color. This sapphire is the largest ever offered on the market. Lawful to expect battle for its conquest. Federico Graglia
