MAGNIFICENT JEWELS | 12 May

The 100.94 carat D-colour IF Spectacle diamond was cut from a rare 207.29 carat rough diamond. The cutting process, took one year and eight months. The “emerald” shape was chosen as it allowed maintenance of the perfect geometry of the crystal. The diamond sold for CHF12,840,500 / US$14,242,567 / €11,730,951, $141,000 by carat.

5 May 2021 marked 200 years since the death of Emperor Napoléon I (1769-1821), and it is an extraordinary coincidence that the spectacular parure of sapphires and diamonds, from the collection of his adoptive daughter, Stephanie de Beauharnais, Grand Duchess of Baden (1789-1860) were presented for sale. The nine pieces included a tiara, one collier, one pair of earrings, two pendants and brooches, a ring and one bracelet, alongside the important sapphire crown of Maria II Queen of Portugal. The collection was 100% sold, achieving a combined total of
CHF3,286,250 / US$3,645,109 / €3,002,318, led by Maria II Queen of Portugal’s crown which realised CHF1,770,000 / US$1,963,268 / €1,617,054.



Further highlights of the sale included a magnificent fancy intense pink coloured diamond of 15.23 carats, which realised CHF8,604,000 / US$9,543,479 / €7,860,528, a superb fancy purplish-pink coloured diamond ring by Boucheron, which achieved CHF3,150,000 / US$3,493,952 / €2,877,808 and a heart-shaped diamond pendant of 53.53 carat, which sold for CHF2,790,000 / US$3,094,643 / €2,548,916.

Max Fawcett, Head of Department: “Christie’s saw strong bidding from all over the world both online and on the telephone, with clients back in the room for the first time in over a year. With a sell through rate of 91% by lot and 98% by value, the market demonstrated incredible strength, and prices were strong in both diamonds as well as historic and signed jewellery. Very exciting and we look forward to our successful sales in Paris, London, Hong Kong and finally New York to conclude the Spring season.”
