Pink Diamond Scores Big at First Phillips Jewelry Sale in Geneva
November 7, 2023 |
Phillips sold a pink-diamond ring for CHF 11.9 million ($13.2 million) at its inaugural Geneva jewelry auction, making it the highlight of the 110-lot event.
The cut-cornered rectangular modified brilliant-cut, 20.19-carat, fancy-intense-pink, VVS1-clarity stone was the fourth-largest of its color ever to appear at auction. The price it achieved at the Geneva Jewels Auction: ONE — which took place Monday — fell within its presale estimate range of CHF 10 million to CHF 15 million ($11.1 million to $16.7 million).
In July, Phillips announced that it would begin holding annual jewelry auctions in the Swiss city, as global sales for the category had been strong.
