Even on the last day of the June auctions, the lively participation of bidders did not break off. The extensive collection of jewelry from German private ownership attracted buyers from all over the world.

The focus was on the fancy designs of the 1980s by Herman Hermsen. Both serial works and unique pieces were competed for by bidders and led to some price increases. The necklace '1/3 - 1/3 - 1/3' from 1982, produced in an edition of 15 pieces, went to a new owner for €2,500.

The necklace 'Venusia' by Joyce J. Scott was particularly sought after. The elaborate work attracted the attention of high-ranking institutions and, after an exciting exchange of bids, went to an international museum for € 8,000.
