Thinking about participating in an online auction?
Follow the "1-2-3" process.
1 - Do your research. Jumping into an auction blindly may result in you underbidding and losing out or overbidding and regretting it later.
2 - Set your budget. Decide how much you are willing to spend overall or on any particular item. This will give you a framework for your bidding so you can proceed without second-guessing yourself.
3 - BID! Here are two popular bidding tactics, that could make things work in your favour - "sniping" and "squatting". Sniping, is when you wait until the last possible second to place your bid. Use this tactic if you REALLY want the item, and price isn't a problem.
Squatting, is when you bid early, and counter every subsequent bid to stake your claim. To be effective, make more than just the minimum bid each time.

Diamonds truly are a girls best friend.
And this beauty went to a very wealthy one.
Going down in history as one of the most expensive auctions EVER, it's the largest fancy pink diamond ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America.
At 59.6 carats this big shiny rock sold for $71.2 million at a Sotheby’s auction in Hong Kong in 2017, exceeding the previous record for the most expensive diamond sold at auction.
The perfect accessory? 😂
