In 1940, billionaire banker David Rockefeller married Margaret "Peggy" McGrath, and during their 56-year marriage the couple collected magnificent works of art and fine jewelry. Yesterday, 19 jewelry items from their massive collection hit the auction block at Christie's, with most far outperforming pre-sale estimates. An aquamarine and diamond “Leaves and Flowers” bracelet was estimated to sell for $40,000 to $60,000. When the hammer went down, the bracelet had fetched $250,000 — more than four times the high estimate. More auction highlights at our blog... http://bonafinejewelers.thejewelerblog.com/
