CHRISTIE’S MAGNIFICENT JEWELS NY AUCTION
15 December 2015
Christie's Magnificent Jewels auction, which took place in New York last week, achieved sales of US$59,685,125, reports the company.

The top lot for the sale was reportedly the ‘Victory Diamond', a D color rectangular-cut diamond ring of 31.34 carats, which realized US$4,309,000 or US$137,492 per carat. Other major pieces sold were a 43.79-carat diamond ring which went for US$4.029 million, a 103.66-carat diamond pendant necklace sold US$3.75 million, and a 28.28-carat diamond ring sold for US$3.41 million.

Christie's reports impressive prices for large white diamonds and colored gemstones, which, it says, further supports collecting trends seen all season in Geneva, Hong Kong and in New York.

Strong prices were also achieved for signed iconic pieces by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany & Co. and Schlumberger, among others, says Christie's.

Christie's reports that the collection of the late New York socialite Carroll Petrie was 90 percent sold by lot, which included a unique Tony Duquette design necklace from the royal Collection of the Duchess of Windsor. In total, 11 lots realized over $1 million, and four fetched over $3 million.
