NEW YORK, NY—The August Jewels & Watches auction took place on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 11AM EDT, offering a curated selection of gorgeous estate jewelry and rare collectible watches. Sale highlights included a stunning GIA-certified 5.59-Carat Fancy Yellow Diamond Ring. Canary or Fancy Yellow diamonds are some of the most popular jewels in the summer season and also incredibly rare. Only about 1 in every of 16,500 carats that are mined are yellow diamonds, and even fewer are considered gem quality. The present example features an even saturation in color and is nearly devoid of inclusions commonly found in most natural diamonds. The ring attracted lots of early interest and online bidding activity, eventually being sold to an absentee bidder for an achieved price of $46,875

In other rare highlights, the August sale also boasts a Hublot Big Bang Chronograph in Titanium and 18K Rose Gold Hublot has been producing oversized sport watches with avant-garde design and precious metal since the 1980s. The Big Bang originally debuted in 2005 and is considered a design classic today. The present example has an interesting tan dial and original diamond-encrusted bezel. The luxury timepiece, achieved more than double its starting bid, achieving a final $13,750.
