Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels Sale achieved $65.1 million, a record for jewellery at Sotheby’s New York.
The sale was lead by the emerald-cut “Perfect Diamond” at a magnificent 100.20 cts. Only six perfect quality diamonds over 100 carats have been sold at auction in the last 25 years, making some justification for the final sale price of $22,090,000.
