The top piece should be a sensational Fancy Vivid Blue Diamond Ring of 8.08 carats from Bulgari (estimate 13-18 million dollars). According to Christie’s, this stone can be counted among the best blue diamonds ever on the market. But among the 370 lots for sale, there are also other stones of great appeal: a necklace with a heart-shaped pink diamond of 15.56 carats (estimate 9.5-12 million) and a ring with yellow diamond Art Déco Fancy Vivid of 8.09 carats, by Gillot & Co. (estimate: 900.000-1.200.000). Do not miss the classic colorless stones, such as the ring with diamond D classified 28.70 carats, VVS2 purity, type IIa, which comes from the heritage of financier Lee Vandervelde, who died last March: in this case the sale of jewelry will go to benefit of the Children’s Hospital and Children’s Institute in Los Angeles (estimate: 1,500,000-2,500,000).

Next to the super diamonds, for the design lovers Christie’s auction also offers a bracelet, Diamond Tube, by Suzanne Belperron (estimate 200-300.000 dollars).

Those who love vintage jewelry, there are also Art Déco pieces by Cartier, a bracelet of coral, enamel and diamonds by Donald Claflin for Tiffany & Co. (100,000-150,000) and Beribboned Heart, a heart-shaped enamel diamond and diamonds bracelet by René Boivin, which belonged to the Andy Warhol collection.
