Pre-Auction Analysis: 2016, Sotheby’s Hong Kong

Sotheby’s Hong Kong

Our pre-auction analysis focuses on visual elements that are not expressed on the GIA report, such as “inner-grade”, “undertone” and “color dispersion”. We use simple grades 1, 2, 3, 4 and 4+ to evaluate these features. It is often difficult to identify such characteristics when viewing stones in an auction catalogue.

We are delighted to see that our readers are embracing the 1-4+ grading system.
