CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Lynn Wolf

Jewelry Appraiser, New York

Transparency is important because that’s how we ourselves like to do business. That’s why I would rather work with Fortuna than with almost any other auction house.

Lynn Wolf

Jewelry Appraiser, New York

Seth and Anna are so honest and transparent, and that’s so refreshing in our industry. They always have everyone’s interest in mind.

Eli Frei

I first met the folks at Fortuna in 2011. Knowing them for the past 5 years, my trust with them is 110%, and they are the friendliest people in the business.

Fortuna Auction was easy to work with. It was a quick turnaround compared to other auction houses. Fortuna holds the jewelry for less time before the auction, so my jewelry isn't tied up as long in case they don’t sell—and if they do sell, I get my money faster.
