Bond Breaks Record at Sotheby’s with Orangy Pink Diamond
Beloved James Bond superstar Sir Sean Connery put his 15.20 carat Briolette Cut Fancy Orange Pink VS2 Diamond pendant into Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels auction in Geneva this past week expecting to receive approximately $1.2 million to $2.2 million for the piece. Imagine the delight when it sold for $4M USD – double the pre-sale estimate. Sotheby’s has described the sale as a “record bid” for a Fancy Orange-Pink diamond.
In addition to the sale of this pendant, Connery also sold a 5.18 carat pear cut diamond ring which fetched $249,300 which was slated to come in at approximately $145,600 to $244,300.
