We attended this auction in October 2010. What a thrill .. and what a frustration to realize we could never afford most of what we saw there. That set above, by the way, is expected to fetch between $15,000 - $20,000 USD!
Then there's the 24.30ct aquamarine pendant below:
Gorgeous art deco piece accented by diamonds and set it platinum, they estimate this one to fetch between $2100 - $2625 USD. But I remember a similar one at the previous auction that had a similar estimate and it went for more than twice the estimate! And remember too that the winning buyer also pays a further 25% buyer's premium + sales taxes! Ouch!
As I go through the Dupuis catalogue (and you can do the same just by browsing the auction online) I can't help but think how low our prices are! Like crazy low, especially now during our VIP SALE at RUBY LANE which ends, by the way, in 8 days.
