“The Sunrise Ruby” that had the rare grading of ‘pigeon’s blood’ colour, was from a private collection of Cartier jewels. It had been estimated at 11.7 million to 17.5 million Swiss francs.

The auction also saw strong demand for coloured stones and exceptional natural pearls. Besides, a 8.72 carat historic pink diamond fetched 14.8 million Swiss francs ($15.94 million). Graded fancy vivid pink, it was believed to have been part of the incredible jewellery collection of Princess Mathilde Bonaparte, niece of France’s Emperor Napoleon I, according to the auction house, adds a report.

Also, a rare natural pearl necklace, composed of two graduated rows strung with a total of 78 pearls, soared to 6.5 million Swiss francs, setting a world auction record, Sotheby’s said.
