RAPAPORT... Sotheby’s jewelry executive Frank Everett returned to the auction house last week after a brief stint at Graff Diamonds.

Everett (pictured) left Sotheby’s at the end of June to join London-based Graff as its US sales president, and on July 6 posted a photograph on Instagram of his first day at the jeweler. However, in an update Tuesday, he informed his social-media followers of his reversal.

“For auction fever there is no cure,” he wrote. “After briefly turning back to retail, I've returned to Sotheby’s to tell the stories of the jewels and the ladies who cared for them.”

Everett, previously Sotheby’s director of jewelry sales, has returned in the expanded role of senior vice president and sales director for the auctioneer’s luxury division.

“I’m excited that my role will now cross the entire luxury and lifestyle division, expanding Sotheby’s reach into related categories, including fashion and timepieces,” he added in a statement to Rapaport News Wednesday.
