Diamonds, be it old or new, big or small is always a girl’s favorite possession. The shining beauty of a diamond conveys its pricing value. Be it stunning world’s most expensive diamond rings or lovely heart shape diamonds, every piece of skillfully crafted diamond is an epitome of excellence. Although, colored diamonds are in vogue these days, a blue diamond is the rarest and most expensive one. One such blue diamond ring is being auctioned at Bonhams.
The ring made by Bulgari will be offered at the Fine Jewellery Sale at Bonhams, New Bond Street, London on September 21st.
This amazingly shining ring has never been seen at any auction before and is being sold by a private European collector. Bulgari was a very well-known brand in 1960s and it was then when the collector’s father bespoke the ring from a renowned Italian jewellery house as a gift for his wife.
Bulgari is always known for its simplicity and elegance and this ring is an example of one such piece. The ring has two crossover diamonds in pear shape set diagonally. The white diamond weighs 3.93 carats, D color and is certified as VS2 clarity whereas the blue diamond that has been rated as highest grading for a colored diamond weighs 3.72 and SI2 clarity. The ring is expected to fetch somewhere around $965,000-1,287,000.
As Jean Ghika, Director of Jewellery, states, "Not only is this jewel an exquisite example of Bulgari's craftsmanship but the fancy vivid blue diamond is an incredibly rare gem in its own right. Bonhams is honoured to have been chosen to handle the sale of this magnificent ring".
Earlier, Bonhams has set records for selling jewelry at their Fine Jewellery Sales and has sold many intricately-designed pieces of jewelry by Cartier, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels and Andrew Grima.
