We recently partnered with the fine folks at Bonhams auction house as they presented some of the rarest and most precious stones from around the world to an exclusive Hong Kong audience.

A handful of our friends joined a VIP preview before the final auction, where – aside from a special session to learn more about the history and provenance of coloured diamonds – the ladies were invited to try on some of the impressive gems themselves.

Hosted by Director of Jewellery, Graeme Thompson, and Head of Jewellery Sales, Paul Redmayne, it was a riveting evening for jewellery and rare diamond collectors to get up close and personal with a beautiful selection of stones. And, as if that wasn’t enough, Bonhams also unveiled a myriad of rare jewels and jadeites that were set to be auctioned the following evening.

The opportunity to learn more about the glittering diamonds certainly made an impression on some of our guests; before the night was done, we saw several silent bids entered, with a few individuals even attending the live auction that followed to raise their paddles in person.
