The auction house raked in more than $175 million in total.

A pear-shaped pink diamond called “Unique Pink” sold for $31.6 million on Tuesday at Sotheby’s Geneva auction, pushing total sales for the auction to $175.2 million, a world record for any jewelry sale, Rapaport writes. The article says that the previous record was $160.9 million, also set by Sotheby’s in an equivalent auction in May of last year. Tipping the scales at 15.38 carats, “Unique Pink” was sold to an Asian private buyer for $2.1 million per carat. Sotheby’s had estimated it would sell for between $28 million and $38 million.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
