John Moran Auctioneers will offer a pink diamond set in a ring at its final jewelry sale of the year, estimating it could bring in up to $550,000.
The marquise-shaped, 5.43-carat, fancy-intense-orangy-pink, I1-clarity diamond is surrounded by 70 full- and single-cut diamonds, the auction house said Monday. It will lead the December 5 Fine Jewelry & Watches sale.
In total, John Moran will present 225 items, including jewelry by designers such as Bulgari, Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels. Watches from Patek Philippe, Rolex and Vacheron Constantin will also go on the block.
Diamonds comprise more than 150 of the lots on offer, the company noted.
