The New York Magnificent Jewels auctions from April, October and the most recent in December brought in almost $193.9 million altogether.
The final 495-lot auction last Wednesday, December 4, ended with the sale of an internally flawless diamond from the Golconda mine in India for $10.9 million.
The Golconda mines are known for diamonds of a certain color and degree of transparency that are rarely seen elsewhere.
In addition to the 52.58-carat, D-color Golconda diamond, the “Property of an Elegant Lady” collection of Leviev diamond jewelry sold for $10.2 million. The most expensive piece in the collection was a 26.72-carat D-color diamond, which sold for $4.3 million.
Looks like someone is getting some really great holiday gifts this year!
