Three lots shared the top result in the auction when each realized $87,500:
A breathtaking Diamond, White Gold Jewelry Suite, Adler boasted a combined total weight of nearly 104.00 carats. Featuring full-cut diamonds in a necklace (62.56 carats), a bracelet (31.55 carats) and a pair of earrings (9.88 carats), the Swiss jewelry house Adler crafted this suite to be worthy of a queen.
Also tying for top lot honors, a stunning Emerald, Diamond, Platinum Bracelet, Van Cleef & Arpels included emerald-cut emeralds, enhanced by marquise-shaped diamonds, baguette-cut diamonds and full-cut diamonds.
A Fancy Yellow Diamond, Diamond, Platinum Pendant-Necklace drew more than a dozen bids before reaching its $87,500 result.
"This is a tremendous piece, the epitome of elegance," Heritage Auctions Fine Jewelry Senior Director Jill Burgum said. "The fancy yellow diamond was an extraordinary gem, in quality and size, allowing the results for this breathtaking necklace to exceed all expectations."
A pair of Diamond, Platinum Earrings, Tiffany & Co. sparked eager bidding before closing at $62,500. The stud earrings featured round brilliant-cut diamonds, each weighing 2.08 carats and set in platinum.
Another standout piece proved to be the Chameleon Diamond, Pink Diamond, Diamond, Gold Ring, which realized $37,500. Showcasing an oval-shaped diamond weighing 2.25 carats, the 18k white gold ring earned its name because when retrieved from storage in a dark place, the diamond changes color in the initial moments of exposure to light.
