Wow! I so hope that piece doesn't disappear from sight forever...

So, which piece is Laurence Graff going to buy and rename? :bigsmile:

La Peregrina just broke an auction record-sold for $10.5 million - low est. 2-3 million

$10.5 million for the pearl.

After the brooch, the Ping Pong rings will come up. Those are in the realm of "normal" people, so I am guessing there will be a huge premium.

Wow - the rings are closing at $85k! Over 10 times the estimate for some small diamonds.

I am curious about the JAR ring. JAR pieces always get top price and this one also has Liz glamour.

The ring was obviously undervalued at $8-12k, but $158k is impressive.

I am rather amused that we are watching an auction as though it was an spectator sport.

$400k for a 9.6 carat fancy yellow diamond on a 17 inch chain with coloured diamonds sounds pretty good.

I think the Art Noveau butterfly that is coming up is just charming. 10 seconds after opening, it is already at $50k and going up.

If Graff gets it, do you think that he will recut it for the potential IF? Not that I am bitter about the past...

I don't think he'd recut this one...

I'm really suprised that the brooch went for more than the necklace - the necklace being one of THE pieces.

I agree - doesn't make a lot of sense. I wonder what the ruby ring will go for.

I missed which representative got the pendant. Is there any chance it won't be separated from the necklace?

update: La Peregrina actually sold for $11.8 million.

Lady-D, who knows about Graff, but I would hope no. With that gem's provenance, it needs no potential IF grade...and in just a bit, we'll see.

Once again, I don't understand why the coral earrings were more expensive than the bracelet. My guess is just plain demand (more people wear earrings than bracelets) even though the bracelet has more intrinsic value.

Next time I am bidding on ebay, I will be sure to wear evening dress. So much more glamorous.

Wow!

I knew it was going to be like this as did we all.

If anyone sees what the Bulgari snake watch goes for please let me know!

Thanks, Coati! :appl:

I don't think the Bucheron snake watch is up tonight. The only watch in today's auction is Vacheron, which closed at $362k, against an estimate of $300 - $500k. I guess the watch people stayed at home.

Wow - the book is at $170k + cost!

I liked the first auctioneer better. Nice, smooth voice and not quite as rushed.

Danny's snake watch is up! I missed it, since it is listed under jewelry, not watch.

$974k against an estimate of $12-15k. The estimate seems very weird to me. You couldn't buy a similar new watch and this one has the added bonus of being worn on the set of Cleopatra.
