Stewart Young, Director of Jewellery and Head of Jewellery, Asia, commented, "Traditional coloured gemstones of superb quality, such as our star lot from the esteemed Kashmir mine, continue to command strong prices. But at the same time, we are also delighted to see that collectors are happy to pay top prices for newly-trending gemstones such as the Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline. Thanks to strong and international bidding, all 21 pieces of classic Buccellati jewellery from an Asian private collection were sold, with a total doubling its pre-sale estimate. This reaffirms Bonhams' strength of presenting single-owner collections to a global audience to great success."
