Opportunities are Infinite
Most summer auctions in 2018 were dominated by precious metals, diamonds, rare gemstones, and pearl made a comeback. Pearl was highly in demand in some of the auctions. The auction in Geneva, Switzerland in June showcased a gold and pearl earring by Sotheby. A diamond ring and a Burmese ruby and pearl items were in the range of $ 5,900 to $120,100. The auctions of jewelleries by Sotheby’s held in the UK showcased Cartier necklace-based on 20.30 carats diamond and pearl. Pearl has been out of fashion for some time, albeit, the price of a pearl necklace at the auction in Hong Kong in May by Christie’s Magnificent Jewels was up to US $ 2.8 million.
The online auction of Audrey Hepburn’s pair of pink ballet pumps and pearl earrings by Christie in the year, which include other items belonging to the Oscar wining Tiffany’s actress was expected to get in the range of £200 to £15,000.
Types of pearls and its price
Price of pearl varies depending on quality and type of the pearl, and also on the type of gemstone and precious metals used in the jewellery. The colour, shape, lustres and size of the pearl, partially, determines its market price. Harvesting of pearl requires minimum two years and the market of pearl has grown three times in seven years.
Workmanship, demand, marketing strategy (branding, association to celebrated personalities etc.) and supply have direct impact on the market rates.
