Nirav Modi – A name once synonymous with luxury, whose breathtaking diamond jewellery could be spotted at every major red carpet event in the world faces serious jail time for fraud, embezzlement, money laundering and criminal breach of trust.
Most significant of his crimes include a $2 billion banking scam and fraudulently selling engagement rings which turned out to be lab diamonds!!!
But let’s jump to why we are so interested in this story at the moment. The authorities in India are attempting to recover some of his dues by auctioning valuables like art, watches, cars and Hermès Birkins and Kellys that belonged to him and his wife Ami.
The auction is being managed by Saffron Art Gallery in Mumbai where the lots are available for viewing over the next few days. The lots are well documented on the gallery’s website which allows you to pre-bid for the items that catch your fancy and participate in the auction scheduled for 5th March via the app, a call or in person.
There is something in there for every luxury enthusiast looking for a deal. From a Birkin 35 in Togo leather to a Rolls Royce Ghost – 2010 year, browse the collection here
I am personally lusting after the Orange Kelly in Togo leather with gold hardware, and a Red Kelly in Clemence leather with palladium hardware, both Retourne. At price estimates ranging between $5000-8000, they could be just the deal I’ve been looking for!
