Lower prices may also be observed because of downward price trends when an artist falls out of fashion, or for other idiosyncratic reasons. When bidders have independent private valuations of the items on offer, as in Riley and Samuelson (1981), the failure of an item to sell should not influence its future saleability either at auction or privately. But in models where bidder valuations are correlated, as in Milgrom and Weber (1982), the failure of an item to sell is informative about the value it might achieve in another sale.

The auctioneer may also engage in other practices that weaken rings. For example, the auctioneer typically does not reveal the identity of the purchaser, if there is one, and this creates strong incentives for the ring members to bid privately in opposition to the interests of the ring.
