Join Ritchies Auctioneers Sunday, June 22 as we offer over 300 lots of our finest inventory, carefully chosen over the last six months.
Our previous Prestige auction saw three important emeralds sell for over $650,000 and saw other lots of gems, jewellery, watches, art and decorative art attract eager bidders from as far away as China, Russia and India.
The 2014 spring edition of our twice-yearly Prestige auction is already generating buzz among our private international buyers and is likely to set a number of records.
A noteable highlight of this auction is a very important and rare Patek Philippe watch, the very same model sold by Ritchies in 2012 for $250,000. This identical model is an "astronomical" wristwatch, which provides a sky chart, phases and positions of the moon. The night sky of the northern hemisphere rotates counter-clockwise, showing the passage of the sky relative to the meridian of Sirius. It has a platinum case with 18k rosegold lugs and screw-down sapphire crystal back. We highly recommend seeing this watch in person -- words alone do not do this masterpiece justice.
Also available to the discerning buyer is an exquisite emerald and diamond necklace suite, featuring a 56.06ct Colombian emerald surrounded by 30.08ct of emerald-cut diamonds.
Additionally, a fine collection of jewellery, watches, handbags, decorative art and more will be available for purchase to the highest bidder, including two important charcoal drawings by Willem De Kooning.
Live bidding over the internet, phone bidding and absentee bidding will also be available.
