Anna Hu sets auction world record as contemporary Chinese jewellery artist
October 14, 2019 – Anna Hu broke the world auction record as a contemporary Chinese jewellery artist at Sotheby’s “Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite” auction in Hong Kong on October 7.
The “Dunhuang Pipa Necklace” fetched US$5.78 million (HK$45.34 million), the highest price for a contemporary Chinese jewellery creation at auction.
With the current unstable global financial climate and the turbulent political and economic situation in Hong Kong, the result that Anna Hu delivered with her Silk Road Music Collection at Sotheby’s Hong Kong autumn Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite sale proved that her beautiful art jewels are still gems that art connoisseurs seek.
The “Dunhuang Pipa Necklace”, commissioned by Sotheby’s, was created by Anna Hu with a 100.02-carat fancy intense yellow diamond.
The cultural references from East and West, and the ingenious transformable design in this creation, made this necklace a highlight of the sale.
