Leader in the sector and strong of an increasingly international clientele, the Jewelry Department boasts a history of important contributions and auction successes.
Diamonds of important carats, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and natural pearls: each jewel is valued by a team of certified gemologists and experts in the history of jewelry. The departmental objective remains quality and attention to the customer, also through the accurate sharing of advanced condition reports that guarantee increasingly targeted purchases.
To crown an exceptional auction week was the sale of the 16.44-carat drop diamond
for € 1,187,500.00 which, with this memorable result, marks a new historic milestone for Il Ponte Auction House, confirming also the leading role of the jewelry department in the sector. "Thanks to this important award, our international ranking is consolidated. Like the big majors, the department is now a reference point also for precious jewels that reach enviable prices. This is a confirmation towards the consignors who entrust us with increasingly precious goods", Luca Ghirondi, head of the department, claims satisfied. With a total turnover of € 2.6 million, 176% revaluation of estimates, and 84% of lots sold, the sale has stood out for the many international bidders both online and by phone - New York, London, Tel Aviv, Mumbai, Paris, Hong Kong, just to mention some of the main costumers’provenances. A result that confirms a catalogue proposal capable of capturing the attention of an increasingly global audience.
A diamond's cascade that opened an inexhaustible bid competition, where the broche in white gold with two round brilliant cut diamonds of ct. 10.87 and ct. 10.95 (lot 587, sold € 237.500) and two round brilliant diamonds of ct. 3.01 and ct. 3.31 (lots 585 and 576, both sold for € 50,000) stand out among the most relevant adjudications. Among the top lots, are worthily mentioned the yellow gold ring with a cushion ruby of ct. 4.98 (lot 589, sold € 225,000) and the earrings in white gold with two large natural saltwater pearls of approximately 14.05 mm (lot 512, sold € 62,500).
