(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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
