Big Diamonds Fetch Strong Prices at Christie’s

A number of large diamonds and colored stones surpassed their estimates at the recent Christie’s jewelry auction in Paris.

The star of the December 16 Paris Joaillerie auction was a necklace set with an octagonal, rounded corner step-cut, 12.28-carat Colombian emerald and diamond pendant. The piece, which can also be worn as a brooch, brought in EUR 604,800 ($641,890), well above its EUR 250,000 ($265,323) high estimate, Christie’s said last week.

In total, the sale garnered EUR 7.9 million ($8.3 million), with participation from bidders in 40 countries. Nearly half of the items on offer exceeded their upper estimates, Christie’s noted.

Here are the rest of the top 10 items at the sale:
