The Luxury Edit, a sale series spanning Hong Kong, London, Paris and New York. The sale series juxtaposes modernity with tradition, showcasing the season’s best luxury items through a fresh lens. In the series of live and online sales, the exhibitions are tailored to the increasing trend of cross collecting to the new definition of luxury and the evolving role played by auction houses in the sector.
This summer, Sotheby’s Hong Kong exhibited the exquisite collection of rare items including magnificent fine jewels and other treasures from the Important Jewels Auction in Hong Kong and held a cocktail session at its gallery to celebrate the opulence and beauty. Classique joined the cocktail session to capture the enchanting moments of the event, and let’s take a glimpse into the lively affair through our lens:

Also, for the first time in Asia, Sotheby’s introduced the sealed auction which provides a secure platform that bidders will only know the rank of their current bids, and the highest bid will remain undisclosed until the auction concludes, or unless you are the highest bidder. There are a few exclusive items included into the first batch of sealed auction: Forever Star 15.2 Carat D color internally flawless diamond ring, Double sealed Patek Phillippe 5002P-013, Hermès Himalayan Kelly 28 with diamond hardware. With this innovative approach, the excitement and sense of mystery add an extra layer of intrigue for bidders to savor and relish the auction experience.
