Nearly 2,000 bidders from every corner of the world participated in the sale, quickly driving high bids past expectations. A special offering titled "Property of a Lady" proved popular with collectors; by auction's end, the group totaled more than $3 million.

"We were honored to present 'Property of a Lady' and its rare jewels from Tiffany & Co.'s Blue Book," said Jill Burgum, Senior Director of Fine Jewelry at Heritage Auctions. "The sensational pieces were a form of wearable art. Interest was amazing! We were also excited to see competition for other designer brands, and large diamonds lead to higher prices realized."

They included a 5.25-carat Diamond, Platinum Ring, which ended at $399,000 and a 7.24-carat Diamond, Platinum Ring, which sold for $200,000 against a $125,000 estimate. A unique pair of Zambian Emerald, Diamond, Platinum Earrings doubled its estimate when it brought $150,000. The collection also featured additional Tiffany rarities, including a Zambian Emerald, Diamond, Platinum Ring, which brought $137,500 and a beautiful, Diamond, Platinum Necklace, which ended at $131,250.

The sale marked the first time Heritage Auctions revealed the original price paid for each Tiffany & Co., Blue Book piece.

The suite features oval-shaped diamonds weighing a total of approximately 8.80 carats.

Two special creations designed by Amfitheatrof: a Diamond, Multi-Stone, Gold Necklace, Francesca Amfitheatrof for Tiffany & Co. and a Multi-Stone, Diamond, Platinum, Gold Necklace, Francesca Amfitheatrof for Tiffany & Co., each of which sold for $93,750.
