Auction Highlights

10.46-Carat Fancy Pink-Brown Diamond Ring, GIA Certified

What makes pink diamonds so precious? Sure, they are among the rarest diamonds in the world being that you can only source them from limited locations. However, what really sets them apart is what’s inside. Most colored diamonds acquire their color from foreign elements that combine with their carbon crystal structure. However, pink diamonds take on their color from the way they are formed at the atomic level. This particular diamond ring is even more precious being that it is huge compared to other pink diamond rings at 10.46-carats. Also with VS2 Clarity, you can’t lose with this lot.

Rolex "Double Red" Sea Dweller in Steel

Born out of a necessity for for a truly deep diver watch for commercial saturation divers, the Sea Dweller was introduced with a Helium Escape Valve to allow compressed helium to exit the watch after a long dive, rather than building up pressure and popping the crystal off. Originally sold to COMEX, the French commercial diving company, Rolex later made these watches available to the public. The Double Red Sea Dweller, named for it’s two lines of red text on the dial, is one of the most desirable and hard-to find models made by Rolex. The present example, in outstanding condition, is an investment grade example of this celebrated timepiece.

3.19-Carat Round Brilliant Diamond, GIA Certified

Start your journey in the world of diamonds with this versatile 3.19-carat round brilliant diamond, with G color and VS1 clarity. A reliable foundation for a classic engagement ring, this diamond is GIA certified and in excellent condition.
