Everything You Need to Know About November’s Auction Calendar

As we approach the end of October and enter the latter months of an exciting year of auctions, there’s certainly time for a few more surprises before Christmas is upon us and the 2018 auction calendar draws to a close.

November’s auction calendar certainly doesn’t disappoint. Expect a diverse array of sales featuring heavy-duty blockbusters and hidden gems. However, it’s likely to be Christie’s New York auction that will generate the headlines, with a host of multi million dollar works up for grabs, including a $50 million Monet.

Pink Legacy Sensational Colored Diamond Ring

Christie’s Magnficent Jewels

November 13th – Geneva, Switzerland

Being the home of fine jewelry and luxury timepieces, Geneva seems to be a fitting host for Christie’s Magnificent Jewels sale. The auction features a dazzling display of ultra rare rings, earrings and more from the biggest and most luxurious names in the industry.

Leading the way as top lot by quite some distance, the star of the show looks set to be the ‘Pink Legacy Sensational Coloured Diamond Ring’. The ring features a whooping rectangular cut 18.96-carat pink diamond that claims provenance from the Oppenhiemer family. Christie’s has set a higher estimate of 50 million CHF, so if you’ve got your eyes on this one of a kind diamond, it’s not going to come cheap.
