“It’s clear from the results achieved this week in Hong Kong that the market for rare and important jewels is strong across the board. Featuring an impressive selection of jewels from distinguished private collections, our New York sale presents an exquisite array of pieces that span a century, from a late-19th-century antique diamond necklace to a contemporary Wendy Yue diamond, colored diamond, and opal necklace,” Benoît Repellin, Phillips worldwide head of jewelry, and Eva Violante, head of the Americas department, said in a statement. “The auction also features two examples that are among the highest value jewel lots to ever be offered at Phillips, the Red Dragon and a stunning Boodles pink diamond pendant necklace. The sale offers a fine selection for collectors across the board.”
The Boodles necklace is estimated to fetch between $800,000 - 1,200,000, but with the recent sucesses of fancy colored and vivid stones, expectations could easily be exceeded.
