A necklace of diamonds and sapphires reaches the highest price ($ 14.9 million) at Christie’s auction ♦ ︎
The necklace has been purchased for 14.9 million US dollars: it has 21 cushion cut sapphires from 10.56 to 3.02 carats each, 23 diamonds with the same cut from 4.05 to 1.03 carats, mounted on platinum. It was the highlight estimate of the Magnificent Jewels auction organized by Christie’s in Hong Kong. And so it was. But also a ring with an oval ruby of 10.04 carats, half-moon and circular-cut diamonds, platinum and gold, it is been sold for 7.2 million dollars.
Unexpectedly, the first jewel sold made with jade, a much loved stone in the East, is far below: $ 2.8 million for a jade necklace consisting of 20
pearls with an oval pink sapphire.
Better they made a pair of earrings with fancy rose cut diamonds of 5.21 and 5.01 carats, sold for 4.3 million dollars. A bracelet with seven octagonal emeralds designed by Edmond Chin for Boghossian has reached 3.2 million dollars. However, some pieces were not sold. Federico Graglia
