The fall auction season is officially in full swing and buyers are on the hunt for glittering new additions for their collections — it’s an exciting time for everyone, especially with the year-end festivities almost upon us. A key destination for these collectors is Phillips: An auction house and treasure trove of high jewellery, watches and contemporary art.
Ahead of its annual blockbuster Jewels and Jadeite auction happening at Hong Kong’s Mandarin Oriental on November 26, we collaborated with Phillips for an exclusive preview for our members of our Prestige society. Held at private members’ club Straits Clan, guests rubbed shoulders in the cosy Attic while viewing the stunning baubles and watches slated to go under the hammer at the upcoming auction.
Jewellery on display included superlative gemstone rings and earrings, as well as long pearl strand necklaces.
Collectors were given a tantalising glimpse into the statement watches up for auction, ensuring that the men were included in the action too.
Specialists from Philips were on-site to explain the finer details of the pieces to guests, and deliver in-depth presentations on timepieces and the high jewellery up for auction at ‘Jewels and Jadeite’.
