On November 26, Christie’s Hong Kong will host its Hong Kong Magnificent Jewels auction presenting over 300 pieces of fine jewellery estimated to fetch a total of about HK$720 million.
The sale is being headlined by three extremely rare Burmese unheated ruby pieces. The pieces include a pigeon’s blood red ruby and diamond necklace, expected to fetch upwards of HK$38 million, ruby and diamond chandelier earrings, estimated at above HK$15 million, and a 13.21 carat oval-shaped ruby and diamond ring, valued at more than HK$38 million.
Although the rubies take center stage, a sensational array of diamonds, coloured stones, natural pearls and jadeite jewellery will also offer up important pieces for keen collectors. A diamond necklace composed of all D-colour brilliant-cut diamonds is expected to achieve more than HK$56 million. A unique pair of natural pearl and diamond earrings named “The Empresses of the Orient” are also expecting upwards of HK$18 million.
