There were 40 products in total which were auctioned but only seven were bought. Each of the seven stones were auctioned between $5,055 to $56,672.

Of the seven, the highest-priced stone, although price not mentioned, was a H color, VS1 clarity 3.52-carat diamond graded as "excellent." The second most valuable auction was worth $16,397 for a 1.01-carat D color round stone with IF clarity and graded as "excellent".
