RAPAPORT... Bonhams has promoted Leslie Roskind to lead its Hong Kong jewelry department, it said Monday.

Roskind, who has been with Bonhams since April 2019, will oversee the procuring and selling of jewelry in the municipality, and will also liaise with the auction house’s global jewelry team on various projects.
