The company sold 87% of available lots, or 92% by value. The Jewels and Jadeite auction took place on Sunday at Hong Kong’s JW Marriott hotel.

Benoît Repellin,

The sale in Hong Kong drew wide participation and intense bidding by collectors from across 40 countries/ regions, resulting in high sell through rates of 92% by value and 87% by lot. The results prove that the market for colourless and coloured diamonds continue to be robust and particularly sought after. The sale was led by a 26.12 carat D-Flawless (Type IIa) diamond, which fetched HK$19.6 million/ US$2.5 million. In addition, a 2.04 carat fancy intense pink diamond ring ignited intense bidding with 27 bidders and eventually sold for HK$7.1 million/ US$914,816, 3.5 times above its pre-sale high estimate. The sale also seen an unprecedented level of online bidding activity, with 78% of total participants were participating in the sale online.
