Christie’s surprises and offers online, from June 16 to June 30, an exceptional diamond of color D. This is the purest color and sought after by lovers of rare specimens.
Flashback. In 2011, Christie’s changed the game and organized its first online auction with a totally glamorous sale: Elizabeth Taylor’s sensational jewellery. Since then, dematerialized sales have found their audience, leading the house to expand its digital agenda with new precious appointments, now monthly.
After having recently set up a Parisian vintage jewelry sale (see below), this is nothing less than the largest D-color diamond ever sold online that the house will offer for auction from June 16 to 30. Mounted on a ring, this crystalline rarity of almost 29 carats reaches a record estimate in the history of dematerialized sales: between 1 and 2 million dollars. It will also be accompanied by a fine selection of Graff pieces and other exceptional jewels. An eventful sale that is likely to break all records.
For the pleasure of your eyes: a selection of iconic jewellery at Christie’s
Necklace Monete by Bulgari, Alhambra by Van Cleef & Arpels, vintage clips… These are just a few of the jewels that the auction house presented on its website from 13 to 24 April.
While public gatherings were still prohibited, Christie’s unveiled a wide selection of iconic jewellery online for a spring edition that was very much in the spirit of the times. Inspired by this season’s vitality, colorful gemstones, animal and floral motifs, and natural pearls were offered during this dozen-day auction. From the sure values of jewellery from the 1970s, 1980s or 1990s, such as the gold and malachite petals of a vintage Alhambra necklace signed Van Cleef & Arpels, the strong links of the neo antique Monete necklace by Bulgari, to the innovative and airy design of a pair of purple earrings by JAR.
