In France, a few major auction houses – Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Artcurial and Aguttes – dominate jewelry and watch auctions as well as the media – the top ten account for 41% of all jewelry and watch sales. However it is little known that there are in fact 415 auction houses in the country, 68% of which are small companies with annual sales of less than 2 million euros. Scattered throughout Paris and the regions, they too offer jewelry and watches, most often in regular sales (along with furniture, cars and even DIY tools). In other words, they still offer non-wealthy amateurs a rich experience, where real bargains can be found. Keep an eye out!
