Any discussion of high-end, fine jewellery at auction would be incomplete without mentioning Ron Dupuis and his talented team at Dupuis Fine Jewellery Auctioneers.
Based in Toronto, Canada – but with renown both nationally and internationally – Dupuis and his team have made history over the past 25 years by selling jewels totaling more than $50,000,000. In addition to his notable sales achievements and organizing the Fine Jewellery auctions for Sotheby’s in Canada (as a Director from 1980 to 1986), Dupuis is known for his leading edge cataloguing style. Dupuis auctions are typically 80% sold by lot while over 50% fetch prices above estimates in highly competitive bidding wars.
Dupuis invests more in marketing his jewellery consignment services than any other auction house – more than $500,000 annually – including his highly trafficked dupuis.ca website, regular visits to major cities, network of jewellers and appraisers, newspaper ads, and extensive mailing list.
Dupuis also is recognized as an expert in the history of jewellery with his bi-monthly column in Jewellery Business Magazine.
