Heritage Auctions held its first weeklong series of events in Hong Kong, with collectors having a chance to bid on coins, currency, fine jewelry, luxury accessories, rare timepieces and wine. While the house holds quarterly wine auctions and coin and currency sales twice a year, the event marked the first time it offered luxury fashion collectibles. Highlights included a sapphire ring by Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co., a 2002 diamond-laden watch from Patek Philippe and an Hermès matte rose alligator Birkin. “Hong Kong’s fashion-conscious collectors had a chance to bid on the best vintage and contemporary examples from only the top design houses,” says Diane D’Amato, director of luxury accessories at Heritage.
