Sotheby’s Important Jewels Sale Displays Variety of Gems

Posted on February 3rd, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

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.

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.
