Kashmiri Sapphires and Fancy Yellow Diamonds Sparkle in Fortuna’s Jewelry and Watch AuctionDec 09, 2021 11:00 EST
As the calendar approaches the holiday season, Fortuna Auction will present its Jewels & Watches sale. It offers statement pieces of iconic designer jewelry and watches across all style periods. Top picks from the auction include a GIA-certified 16.07-carat natural fancy yellow diamond ring and a flawless six-carat emerald-cut diamond. Leading the auction is a 5.10-carat Kashmiri sapphire ring. It is a statement Bulgari piece crafted in platinum. The star of the ring is the pear mixed-cut Kashmir unheated sapphire. A 2.50-carat brilliant-cut diamond with I color and VS1 clarity accompanies the stone. Baguette-cut diamonds complete this Bulgari ring. These kinds of rich blue sapphires come from Jammu and Kashmir, the land subjected to disputes between India and Pakistan. Acquiring the sapphires from the mines of its mountainous landscape is a challenge.
Beyond jewelry, the sale offers watches of distinction like a Patek Philippe Annual Calendar in 18-karat gold, a Cartier Santos Dumont in 18-karat white gold, and Rolex Day-Date watches. When Rolex launched the Day-Date watch in 1994, the style became a horological icon. This watch is available with factory-set diamonds on the dial, bezel, and lugs. More sparkles are in store in this December sale. View the holiday auction catalog on Fortuna Auction and register to place a bid.
