The greatest round diamond on a ring will sold by Sotheby’s ♦ ︎
The auction on December 5 in Sotheby’s New York has many jewels of great interest. Among the many excellent pieces of the Magnificent Jewels, stands out the largest round diamond ever sold at auction and mounted on a ring. The image spread by Sotheby’s is impressive and perhaps suggests that the ring can not be really worn and exhibited at a public occasion. The diamond, brilliant cut, weighs 110.92 carats. The ring estimate is between 4.2 and 6.2 million dollars. The stone that has been classified as L-color with VS1 clarity and a good shine, cut and symmetry.
But it is not the only strong piece of the auction. It is worth mentioning a ring with a vivid blue diamond of 5.69 carats, which is sold with an estimated 12 million to 15 million dollars. Also featured is a ring with a large 15-carat Burmese ruby, suggested for an estimate of 2.5 to 3.5 million dollars, or a ring with a rare pink-orange diamond proposed at 1.8-2.2 million dollars. Rare pieces for collectors or investors who close the jewel in a safe. Precious, but perhaps (most probably) more wearable on special occasions are a Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet with diamonds and sapphires rated 1-1.5 million, and a emerald ring, also by the same Maison, belonged to Elizabeth A. Keck, wife of an American oilman: the gem is estimated at $ 250-350,000. In this group it seems almost for discount. Federico Graglia
