Tune into an #instalive @jewelleryoutlook starting at 9 am Geneva time on Tuesday November 11, 2021, in which Helen Molesworth, Head of Business Development of digital trading platform Gembridge, will talk about trends seen in this week’s Geneva Magnificent Jewels auctions staged by Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
What is the significance of the Geneva Magnificent Jewels auctions in the global jewellery and gemstone markets? What was the mood like?
The highest profile lot across the two sales were the Marie-Antoinette Diamonds, sold by Christie’s. What’s your analysis of the sales result, which came in at more than twice the pre-sale estimate? And the Romanov sapphire jewels (Sotheby’s)?
What were the key overall trends in the sales? How did signed pieces do? What about diamonds and coloured gemstones
? Natural pearls?
Why did some items fail to sell?
