    Sotheby’s Important Jewels Sale Displays Variety of Gems

    Posted on February 3rd, 2015 by Joe G

    This Thursday, February 5, will mark Sotheby’s New York’s 2015 “Important Jewels” sale. The sale includes jewelry designs from the last 100 years, with styles varying from antique, to retro, to contemporary.

    One of the highlighted pieces is a platinum ring featuring 14.78-carat oval-cut diamond, given a D color grade from the GIA — the highest color rating a diamond can get — as well as a VVS2 clarity grade. The dazzling jewel is flanked by two one-carat tapered baguette diamonds. It is estimated to fetch between $1.1 million to $1.5 million.

    Also on the block are a 14-carat white gold and diamond ring, and a fancy orangy pink diamond and diamond-pendant necklace. These items have estimated prices of $575,000 to $675,000 and $425,000 to $475,000, respectively.

    You can see the other jewels that are for sale, as well as more information about the auction, at Sotheby’s website here.

    Customer Testimonial

    Had a Great Experience

    I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    Awesome place!

    What a super knowledgeable gemologist. After all that experience also they are soooo willing to help and answer all the questions I had. Excellent experience. They went above and beyond for me. Highly recommended. Super trustworthy.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
