Tomorrow, this coming Wednesday, December 11th, there is going to be a highly anticipated auction held at Sothebys in New York City. To be featuring diamonds that any collector would marvel over, the Magnificent Jewels sale will be highlighted by a 51.75 ct. vivid yellow diamond ring that carries a $2.5-$2.5 Million estimate.

Apart from this item, there will be other superb pieces available such as a custom Bulgari 18k gold, spinel, turquoise and diamond earrings. This item has drops inspired by Elizabeth Taylor and Cleopatra, with 100% of the proceeds going towards the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Some of the other notable jewelry to be auctioned off by Sothebys include the following:

  • An Indian-inspired 18k gold, emerald, and diamond necklace by Cartier that was made in 1947 has 100 cts. t.w. Colombian emeralds and is expected to fetch $600,000-$800,000.

  • A diamond and platinum ring with a 24.48 ct. D-color VS1 clarity emerald-cut diamond, anticipated to go for $1.5 Million-$2.5 Million.

  • An Egyptian-revival Faience and Jeweled Brooch dating back to 1923 that represents just one of only two fan-shaped brooches ever made by Cartier should sell for anywhere from $300,000-$500,000.

It is with great enthusiasm that we now can look forward to yet another groundbreaking auction being held by our illustrious brand. With our most recent post regarding Sothebys having come just a few weeks ago when Jony Ive & Marc Newson designed watches, an aluminium desk, Leica Camera and more were auctioned off, this forthcoming occasion tomorrow in New York City is bound to be yet another success.
