Pre-Auction Analysis: October 7th 2019, Sotheby’s Hong Kong, Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite

Sotheby’s ,Hong Kong, Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite, October 7th 2019

This year’s sale takes place under a very challenging commercial climate. The civil riots in Hong Kong might reflect directly on the amount of people attending the sale and we recommend not overlooking this fact when we analyse the final results.

As always, Our Hong Kong Pre-Auction Analysis focuses on elements that are hidden from the unprofessional eye. We will describe the important visual elements for those who cannot attend the preview and discuss characteristics such as: Undertone, Color Dispersion, and Inner-Grade (IDU; a detailed explanation appears at the bottom of this article). When we analyse and grade of any Fancy Color Diamond it is always done in relation to its GIA grade.

We use grades 1, 2, 3, and 4, 1 being the lowest grade. Grade + is granted in rare cases and stands for stones with an exceptional characteristic. Stones that receive a minimum total IDU score of 8, without a red remark, are considered to be “Gems” and are generally sought after by high-end jewellery brands, collectors and the investment community. 

For your convenience, we have added direct links for the GIA reports.
