Exquisite Antique Jewels and Diamonds Bring Exceptional Results at Dupuis Important Jewels Auction

With total sales of over three million dollars, Dupuis Fall Important Jewels auction saw vigorous bidding from both local and international buyers. A rich collection of jewels, including a strong representation of fine antiques from important estates drew global attention.

A highlight of the auction was an exceptional Cartier antique emerald ring with a fascinating story to tell. Reputedly once owned by noted Russian Prince Felix Youssoupoff, the ring had an estimate of $50,000-$60,000, and achieved a stunning $160,000 after vigorous bidding, including from many international telephone bidders.

Colourless diamonds of over a carat, antique jewels, natural pearls, and Art Deco jewels were all very strong, with over 80% sold in each category. Antique jewels averaged a hammer price of over 180% of the low end of the pre-auction estimate.

The final lot of the auction, a 7.06 carat emerald cut diamond ring of very fine quality, sold for the upper end of its estimate, at $250,000.
