(PRESS RELEASE) On February 6, 2020, Fortuna held its first sale of the new decade. The Fine Jewels sale offered a well-rounded selection of fine estate diamond jewelry and designer pieces, and achieved a nearly 70% sell-through rate.

The sale brought in bidders and consigners from around the world, featuring items consigned from countries like Spain, and bids coming all the way from Kuwait. It was also the first of Fortuna’s auctions to be streamed live on Facebook.

Among the sale highlights sold was a 4.13-Carat Emerald-Cut Loose Diamond. This fine diamond came accompanied by a GIA diamond report stating the stone as possessing G color and VVS1 clarity. The diamond achieved $40,625 at auction.

The sale also featured rarely seen designs, like that of a Tiffany & Co. Aquamarine Morganite and Diamond Drop Necklace. The piece had never been worn and was in excellent condition. The stunning lot which was crafted in platinum in a spectacular cascading design, achieved $30,000 at auction — more than double its starting bid.

The next Fine Jewels auction on Fortuna’s calendar is set for March 19 at 1PM EDT, and is still accepting consignments. If you have jewelry or watches you would like to submit for auction, visit FortunaAuction.com or call (212) 389-9040 for a free valuation.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
