On 16 May this year, auction house Sotheby’s will offer valuable pieces of jewelry. At the Magnificent Jewels & Noble Jewels auction in Geneva, Sotheby’s will present the ultimate in coloured diamonds: Apollo and Artemis, two breath-taking and exceptional stones. The divine diamond twins—one pink and the other blue—are perfectly matched in size, cut and tonality. Blue Diamond “Apollo” has 14.54 carats and pink “Artemis” 16 carats. Expensive pleasure: almost €66 million!
Sotheby’s claims that it is the most important and the most expensive pair of earrings that any auction house ever offered for sale, and are presented to the public in London.The stones are currently mounted as a spectacular pair of earrings, but are being offered separately, on account of their extreme rarity, power and presence. They are, says David Bennett, Worldwide Chairman of Sotheby’s International Jewellery Division, “by far the most important pair of earrings ever offered at auction.”
