LAMBERTVILLE, N.J. — An unenhanced Colombian emerald weighing some 29 carats brought $1,030,000 in Rago’s $4.25-million dollar jewelry auction December 4. It was followed immediately by a pear-shaped diamond of nearly equal size, suspended as a pendant, that attained $850,000.
“Property from many fine homes, collectors and estates provided us with beautiful material across a wide spectrum,” said Sarah Churgin, Rago’s Director of the Jewelry Department, “From Imperial jade to museum quality Ottoman era Armenian jewelry, from top designers such as Cartier to diamonds and gemstones significant in their own right, this was a benchmark sale for us.”
A complete review of the auction will appear in an upcoming edition.
