Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 11 AM EDT     |      Live & Online


Fortuna’s first sale of the fall was a tremendous success, with the September Jewels & Watches auction being host to frenzied pre-bidder activity and exciting bidding wars. The sale featured a broad assortment of diamond sparkles and one-of-a-kind estate pieces. The September sale was led by none other than September’s own birthstone, in the form of a Harry Winston 3.59-carat Burmese Unheated Sapphire and Diamond Ring. The fantastic accessory came accompanied by an AGL Certifiate and was reminiscent of the equally notable sapphire jewels of Hollywood icons and royalty.

Harry Winston 3.59-Carat Unheated Burmese Sapphire and Diamond Ring

There is no better way to celebrate September than with September’s own birthstone. This utterly gorgeous AGL-Certified Harry Winston 3.59-Carat Burmese Unheated Sapphire and Diamond Ring is the perfect piece to kick off the fall season. Its vibrant blue color and absence of noticeable fissures makes this stone highly desirable and especially rare, given the sapphire is certified to be non-heated. Sapphires have graced the hands of many royal figures of the past and held a spiritual significance in many ancient cultures. In fact, the Persians of old believed the earth actually rested on a giant sapphire, which made the sky blue. After a starting bid of $18,000 this stunning ring achieved $30,000 at auction.

10.02-Carat Radiant-Cut Diamond Ring, GIA Certified

The radiant cut is a combination of “step-cuts,” such as the emerald-cut, and “brilliant cuts,” like the round. The magnificent shape combines all the benefits of both cuts, creating maximum brilliance and fire. It is no wonder radiant-cuts are a popular choice amongst celebrity engagement rings, like Jennifer Lopez’s important diamond ring, given to her by Ben Affleck. This whopping 10.02-carat diamond is extraordinarily clean, particularly for its size, has no fluorescence, and comes accompanied by a GIA Certificate. The eye-catching ring whose yellow hue couldn’t be more a testament to the happy and golden leaf-like colors of the season achieved $125,000 at auction.
