Autumn Goes into Overdrive with a Jampacked October 2017 Auction Calendar

October is set to be another hectic month in the auction world, with the majority being dominated by fine art and antiques; Autumn is generally the busiest season of the year for art sales. We at Borro Blog have chosen a few highlights that are not to be missed in the October auction calendar, which are detailed below:

Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite – Hong Kong, October 3rd

This is arguably Sotheby’s largest and most prestigious jewellery sale throughout the whole of Autumn. The highlights of the auction include a rare art deco ‘Tutti Frutti’ Cartier bracelet, alongside an impressive 8.49 carat ruby ring by JAR and an emerald and diamond parure by Van Cleef & Arpels. However, the most expensive estimate from the sale comes from the ‘very rare and impressive ruby and diamond ring, designed and mounted by BHAGAT’, expected to fetch a higher estimate of 88,000,000 HKD (£8,395,117).
