Sotheby's Hong Kong Jewellery Autumn Sales Totals US$55m

Two days after the landmark sale of the 102.39 carat D Colour Flawless Oval Diamond which sold for HK$121.6m / US$15.7m, Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels auction tonight sold further exceptional gemstones, led by ‘Imperial Green’ Jadeite Bead and Diamond Necklace, bringing this season’s jewellery sale total to HK$426 million / US$55 million.

A highly important 102.39-carat D Colour Flawless Oval Diamond sold for HK$121.6m.

"We are encouraged by this season’s jewellery auction results. Travel restrictions were no impediment to this October sale, with two-thirds of our buyers participating from outside Hong Kong, a result that is testament to our digital platform and outreach. Collectors’ taste in the region remains selective, with eyes focusing on rare, top-quality investment grade jewellery – whether diamonds, gemstones or jadeite – and pieces with a strong design appeal, whether antique, period, contemporary or signed. The other star of the show, besides the world-class diamond, was the imperial green jadeite necklace, continuing the success we saw in July for jadeite pieces of the highest calibre," says WENHAO YU, DEPUTY CHAIRMAN, JEWELLERY, SOTHEBY'S ASIA.
