Diamond Riviere Necklace

Posted on May 27th, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

A riviere necklace with 51 “Triple X-cut” diamonds is expected to sell for between $1.4 million and $1.8 million when it hits the auction block at Bonham’s New York Fine Jewelry sale in late June.

Triple X, an informal designation, means a diamond has been given excellent grades for cut, symmetry and polish. Every diamond in this necklace is accompanied by a GIA report that has received such grades, which is extremely rare. The necklace weighs more than 70 carats, with the brilliant-cut diamonds joined together with a heart-shaped diamond clasp, which alone weighs 2.04 carats.

While this necklace is the top lot, colored diamonds and gems are popular this year. Two other top lots at this sale include a 3.56-carat fancy intense pink diamond on a ring mounted in 18k white and yellow gold, and a 25-carat sapphire and diamond ring by famous French jewelry house M. Gerard. They are estimated to sell for $600,000 – $800,000 and $400,000 – $500,000, respectively.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
