Geneva · London · New York · Paris · Online | November – December 2020

From London to New York, by way of Paris, Geneva and online, Christie’s has brought extraordinary objects and designs to many corners of the world this year. Record-breaking results were achieved, including 46 world auction records set during the online sale of Fine & Rare Wines and Spirits, and for a Fancy Purplish Red diamond at US$2,640,000 per carat during Magnificent Jewels in Geneva. Many special lots have gone under the hammer to reach exceptional prices, with The Winston Legacy Sapphire realising US$6,030,000 during New York Magnificent Jewels, and F.P. Journe’s pioneering reference ‘T’ platinum Tourbillon Souverain selling for US$577,500 in Watches Online: The Geneva Edit. Christie’s has also supported a number of charitable causes throughout the year, raising £296,188 during an online jewellery charity auction in aid of Together for Children and their work on child welfare in Greece, as well as important funds for a museum during the sale of the collection of esteemed handbags collector Susan Casden.

We look forward to bringing you more exciting auction opportunities, and spectacular jewels, handbags, watches, and wine in the coming year.
