The mismatched pair of diamonds -- one pink and one blue -- were auctioned in separate lots, but were both sold to the same anonymous buyer. The pear-shaped diamonds were named for the Greek deities and twin brother and sister Apollo and Artemis. The 14.54-carat "Apollo Blue" sold for $42.1 million and the 16-carat "Artemis Pink" for $15.3 million. As a pair, they set a record for the most expensive earrings ever sold at auction. The prior record-holder was the Miroir de l'Amour earrings, which sold for $17.6 million through Christie's in 2016. "The Apollo is a true collector's gem," said Paragon International Wealth Management's Michael King. It's the largest internally flawless fancy vivid blue diamond ever auctioned. Less than 0.1 percent of diamonds have any blue coloring, and only a very small percentage of those are graded Fancy Vivid Blue, according to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). The Artemis Pink is "the most chemically pure type," according to GIA. King and his colleagues at Paragon International Wealth Management had high buyer interest in the pink and blue earrings earlier in May and cited the record-breaking sale of the "Pink Star" diamond for $71.2 million at Sotheby's in April 2017. King said that buyer interest and demand for fancy colored diamonds in the investment marketplace strong. "In the last five to 10 years, the price seems to be escalating rapidly," David Bennett, worldwide chairman of Sotheby's International Jewellery division, told . "Certainly people who own important colored diamonds are aware that the market is strong." Toronto-based is a leader in the acquisition and management of fancy colored diamonds as investments. Paragon International Wealth Management provides its clientele with unparalleled advice and guidance in assembling a successful hard asset investment portfolio. Over the last several years, fancy colored diamonds have shown significantly higher profit margins compared to other hard asset investments and are growing in popularity as an investment vehicle. Paragon International Wealth Management's combined experience in the colored diamond market enables clients to achieve the highest possible annual returns on their investments.

The world's most expensive earrings sold in Geneva on May 16, 2017, when the "Apollo and Artemis Diamonds" were sold to the same buyer for $41,255,566 and $15,035,061 respectively. The world's most expensive earrings sold in Geneva last night when the "Apollo and Artemis Diamonds" were snapped up by the same buyer for a total of $56,290,627. The Apollo earring is blue and much rarer than its pink Artemis partner, and hence the more expensive of the pair, which were sold as separate lots for $41,255,566 and $15,035,061, respectively. The paired gems sold at Sotheby's spring sale of Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels at the Mandarin Oriental in Geneva, with the Apollo Blue sold against an estimate of $38 to $50 million, and the Artemis Pink estimated at between $12.5 and $18 million. In the end, Apollo fetched CHF41,862,500 (US$41,255,566) and Artemis for CHF15,256,250 (US$15,035,061), for a total buy price of CHF57,118,750 (US$56,290,627). The sale of the world's most celebrated and valuable earrings follows closely on the sale of the world's most valuable gem stone on April 4, 2017, Sotheby's captured both records, selling the Pink Star for HK$553 million (US$71.2 million), and more than doubling the record for a fancy vivid pink diamond that was set at $31.56 million in Geneva in May 2016 for the 15.38-carat Unique Pink' diamond. The Pink Star was acquired by renowned jeweler Chow Tai Fook, and has joined a number of outstanding stones in the company's collection including the Aurora Green (a 5.03-carat vivid green diamond which set a new world record for a green diamond of US$16.8 million), and the Cullinan Heritage (a 507-carat rough diamond acquired for US$35.3 million in 2010). The Pink Star (now renamed the CTF Pink Star) is a 59.60-carat oval mixed-cut pink diamond, measuring 2.69 by 2.06 cm (1.06 by 0.81 in) and weighing 11.92 g (0.42 oz). It is the largest internally flawless fancy vivid pink diamond that the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has ever graded, and it received the highest color and clarity grades from the GIA for pink diamonds. Mined by De Beers in Africa in 1999, the 132.5-carat rough diamond was meticulously cut and polished over a period of two years and transformed into this stunning gemstone. The gem had been previously sold for a world record of $US83 million in 2013, but the buyer defaulted and Sotheby's had to buy it back the diamond. Not surprisingly, it claimed the record once more, though more than $10 million shy of the previous sale price. Gems and jewelry have, like art, long been considered an investment, but the gem marketplace has been returning excellent results of recent times and the prospects look good for both short and long term returns. The graphics above and below from the recently released Knight Frank Wealth Report clearly illustrate that colored diamonds and jewelry are performing exceptionally well compared to most alternative asset classes. The KFLII (Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index) is a composite index based on the weighted performance of existing indices for nine classes of collectable asset: fine art; Chinese ceramics; classic cars; coins; furniture; jewelry; stamps; watches; and fine wine. One of the advantages of these "investments of passion" is their low price volatility in comparison to standards such as the gold and shares. In the chart below, the volatility of various investment sectors is compared to gold and the FTSE (Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 Index) – a share index of the top 100 companies with the highest market capitalization on the London Stock Exchange, one of the most important market indices.

Introducing Albertina.com, a jewelry e-commerce site offering a fresh take on traditional jewelry gift items, direct-to-consumer pricing, and a helpful and transparent attitude. Albertina aims to fill a void left by the closures of many local family jewelry stores. Celebratory and conventional gift items such as stud earrings, anniversary bands, and baby bracelets are reconsidered with highly customizable options. Items available at launch include gold bands, charm bracelets, lockets, chain and leather cord necklaces, and engravable hinge-bracelets. Options include metal type (18k and 14k yellow, white, and rose golds, silver, and platinum), movable charm bails as opposed to fixed jump ring connectors, and the option to buy one earring to mix and match rather than staid pairs. Gemstones are fair-trade certified (they come with paperwork) and many items are made from zero-impact recycled metals. With the exception of some Italian components, pieces are designed and made in California. Helpful online tools, such as the Printable Ring Sizer, provide service customary in brick and mortar jewelry stores. Prices range from $40 to $4000, with most items falling around $250. Albertina was started by Winnie Johnson, a graduate of Pratt and GIA who has worked in the jewelry field for over ten years. Much of her experience comes from designing and producing custom jewelry. In doing custom work, she saw that modular design options could be a better solution than expensive one-off designs for most people, especially for the online market.

The bridal focused diamond jeweler in Buffalo NY insists that there is a future for bricks and mortar stores. Scores of retail analysts believe that the future of retailing is doomed. For non-believers, you only have to turn to regional diamond expert Andrews Jewelers. While many established national retail brands are swimming for their lives, a local yet very successful retail jewelry store has lots of exciting things happening. It’s clear this is nothing new for a company with a rich history of success, but it certainly means more when once-powerful retailers are crumbling all around it. “Managed decline seems to be the buzz words in the retail stratosphere, but that is the furthest thing from my mind right now.” states Andy Moquin owner and founder of Andrews Jewelers. “We see an amazing opportunity in what is happening with the retail shopping landscape.” Moquin believes that that the paradigm shift in shopping habits occurring right now has only helped him see more clearly. This is the driving force behind his latest product called the Andrews Allure. Moquin describes the product as the most exciting offering his company has developed in its 20 year existence. “While my retail counterparts are swimming for their lives, I am busy looking for ways to provide my customers with innovation.” says Moquin. Andrews Jewelers will tout the Allure Diamond as one of most brilliant diamonds available anywhere. Consumers have chosen diamonds for fine jewelry and engagement rings for hundreds of years, mainly because of their immense reflective properties. Andrews Jewelers and its staff have always preached the importance of diamond selection based on brilliance and not just traditional gemological grades. Moquin says “This product was developed in order for us to offer a diamond with extremely high levels of light performance.” Moquin explains “Every Allure Diamond is carefully chosen for is reflective performance and must receive the highest cut grades by the GIA and we support our brilliance claims with light performance reports from Sarine Technologies, a leading authority in gemological cut grade and inspection.” In addition to light performance reports, the Allure Diamond will be accompanied with a hard cover story book that documents the exact location and diamond mine the stone came from, GIA grading reports, and photos showing every stage of the cutting process for the customer’s exact diamond. Customers can also view the entire history of their diamond from its inception using an app that can be shared with friends and family. “Retailers need to pull their heads out of the sand and become proactive and not reactive to today’s economic climate. This means pulling on your strengths and immersing yourself in the consumer buying experience. No internet retailer can do this like bricks and mortar retailers, we have the advantage of our physical presence and our selling spaces. People will always be people, we’ll always yearn for experiences and to be entertained. Why not give them a reason to leave the house?” Moquin explains that many retailers are abandoning their retail footprints for the pure-play e-commerce business model. He believes this is a grave mistake and that his future involves expanding, tweaking, and revitalizing the physical storefront, not leaving it behind. Recent reports indicate that Amazon is considering expansion in the physical world, Moquin commented “If retail were dead then why would Amazon be looking to make moves in traditional retailing? I don’t want any part of the e-commerce business, our web presence while important will only be used as a conduit to drive traffic to our retail showroom.” Andrew Jewelers also announced an expansion that includes a new location slated for fall 2017. That project is designed to further support what Moquin calls experience-based retailing. Time can only tell but it’s clear that Andy Moquin’s opinion is that the sector’s death is greatly exaggerated.

"The Echelon Powered Endocutter family has been shown in a very large retrospective study to be associated with significantly reduced hemostasis complications as well as total hospital costs," says Tom O'Brien, Vice President, Global Endomechanical Platform Leader at Ethicon. "The GST technology in this new device minimizes lateral tissue movement which may reduce mucosal bleeding and aids in the capture of all tissue layers, including the mucosa. Failure to capture the mucosa may disrupt the healing process, reduce transection site integrity and decrease staple line integrity." Designed for stability, the ECHELON FLEX™ GST System delivers less tissue slippage during firing by controlling tissue movement with pre-compression and Gripping Surface Technology, which is more likely to completely capture mucosa in the staple line versus the other leading endocutter on the market.iii Better mucosal capture improves staple line integrity and leak resistance, and provides optimal conditions for tissue healing.iii The ECHELON FLEX™ GST System is efficient and cost effective and may eliminate one reload due to less tissue slippage during firingiv compared to ENDO GIA™ Reloads with Tri-Staple™ Technology. The system is associated with reduced procedural costs related to staple line interventions compared with standard reloadsv, with 42% fewer staple line interventionsvi and now offers a new black 45mm reload, intended for use in very thick tissue.
