With 10,480 online visitors, registered bidders came from 36 countries and 17% are first time bidders. A phenomenal display of Jewellery market strength was observed around the world as shown in the recent auctions held in Geneva, New York, Hong Kong, London. Life of Jewellery never stops at Christie’s, we look forward to the Geneva online sale starting tomorrow and live until Tuesday 20th July.”
