  • Fine Jewelry & Watch auction was on November 14, 2019 at 1PM EST.
  • Featured Lots Shown: Cartier Fine Burmese Unheated Ruby and Diamond Ring

NEW YORK, NY—The Magnificent Jewels auction took place on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 1PM EST, offering a curated selection of important estate jewelry and rare signed pieces.

The Magnificent Jewels collection was led by a spectacular Graff 15.01ct Fancy Light Yellow Diamond Ring, which achieved $150,000 with a starting bid of $50,000. The ring came accompanied with a GIA report that confirms the center stone’s color and clarity characteristics. Natural colored diamonds are some of the rarest stones on the market, and their value per carat has only climbed year after year. This gorgeous example, sourced, cut and mounted by the famous London jeweler is unmistakably a treasure of the modern age.

The sale also featured a variety of stunning Tiffany & Co. and Cartier jewels, including a Tiffany & Co. Sapphire and Diamond Bracelet, which achieved $23,750, with a starting bid of 10,000, and a beautiful Cartier Fine Burmese Unheated Ruby and Diamond Ring, which achieved $27,500–more than tripple its starting bid– from a phone bidder.

Introducing the Fortuna Exchange

In 2019, Fortuna introduced a new auction offering called the Fortuna Exchange, a monthly sale series featuring fine jewelry and watches from the celebrated makers across all style periods. The Fortuna Exchange was created to provide our sellers greater opportunities per year to sell their assets on a global platform, without the constraints or limitations of consigning their pieces to seasonal sales that are few and far between. With the addition of the monthly Fortuna Exchange sales, alongside our larger signature sales that occur biannually, we are pleased to offer our clients a year that is abundant with rare and exciting fine jewelry and watch offerings.

If you are interested in consigning to the Fortuna Exchange, please note that your jewelry or watch must be submitted at least a month before the date of the sale. For more information on selling at auction, click here.

The next opportunity to consign is for our December Important Jewels and Important Watches auction, which will take place December 12th. The cutoff date to submit your fine jewelry or watches is November 13. Please contact our office or fill out our web form for a complimentary auction appraisal.
