This was the first live jewelry auction since the pandemic. Many lots went unsold including a 3.01 ct fancy vivid blue diamond with VS1 clarity. The auction house withdrew the diamond from sale. It was estimated to be sold for $4.3 – $6.3 million.

Many pieces with fancy colour diamonds went unsold, however, a marquise-shaped fancy intense pink diamond weighing 7.00 carats, between fancy-shaped diamond shoulders, the mount highlighted with brilliant-cut diamonds was sold for more than $3 million including a buyer's premium. However a few rings with fancy yellow and blue diamond failed to make the cut.
