By Erika Winters

Christie’s Hong Kong has announced “Statement Jewels,” an online-only sale comprising 80 jewelry lots with a wide range of prices–estimates start at HK $2000/ US $250. The sale–which goes live on Tuesday, February 25, and runs through Thursday, March 6–will take place at www.christies.com/statementjewels.

Highlights include an array of colored-gemstone jewelry sets and signed pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels, Chaumet, and Chopard.

In 2013 Christie’s garnered $678.3 million in jewelry sales–the highest annual result for an auction house. Following that result in 2014, Christie’s is continuing to develop unique sales channels for collectors. The online-only sale “Statement Jewels” aims to bring unique pieces from private collectors to jewelry lovers in a more accessible format.
