We don’t know anything about this buyer (or this buyer!) but he has just bought himself a magnificent jewel: a solitaire for which he paid 48,500 euros at an auction held at Toulouseduring the month of September 2022.
To the municipal credit of Toulouse
It is the Crédit municipal de Toulouse which orchestrated this big transaction. As a reminder, the organization located rue des Lois practices pawnbroking. You can come and drop off a valuable object in exchange for some money.
A loan sum that must be returned with interest if the object is to be recovered. But some owners, because they want to or because they can’t repay the loan amount, choose the auction.
A 7.9 carat diamond
This is what the owner of this magnificent ring decided, with a 7.9 carat diamond set on a platinum ring. A jewel that the auctioneer had put a price on around 25,000 euros.
Nearly 39,000 euros for the saleswoman
Bidding rose well: finally the hammer of the auctioneer fell down to 48,500 euros. Once withdrawn the amount that the Municipal Credit lent her when she deposited the ring and the various fees, the saleswoman of the solitaire will receive more than €39,000.
