Christie’s will offer a 29.60-carat yellow diamond at its upcoming Paris auction, assigning it a high estimate of EUR 400,000 ($434,395).
The cushion-cut, fancy-intense-yellow, VS1-clarity stone will be joined by a royal blue, 7.58-carat Kashmir sapphire, with the same upper price target, Christie’s said Monday. Both will lead the online Joaillerie Paris sale, which will take place from June 9 to 21.
A necklace featuring a 14.86-carat Colombian emerald and diamonds is expected to garner between EUR 150,000 and EUR 200,000 (between $162,898 and $217,198) at the sale. Meanwhile, an 8-carat Burmese ruby ring will also go under the hammer, carrying a presale estimate of EUR 100,000 ($108,599) to EUR 200,000.
A Chaumet ring containing a Ceylon sapphire weighing more than 30 carats has a price range of EUR 100,000 to EUR 150,000. The auction will showcase jewelry from well-known designers including Belperron, Boucheron, Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany & Co. and Van Cleef & Arpels.
