Large diamonds comprise six of the top 10 pieces that feature in the Christie’s online Paris jewelry auction.

One of the showcase items set to go under the hammer at the December 5 to 15 Joaillerie Paris sale is a modified lozenge brilliant-cut, 15.84-carat, F-color, SI1-clarity diamond ring by Cartier. It carries an estimate of EUR 250,000 to EUR 350,000 ($259,478 to $363,269), Christie’s said Monday.

Meanwhile, antique jewels from the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century will also be on offer. A Neo-Renaissance pomander bracelet bearing rubies, pearls and enamel (pictured directly below) by Jules Wièse for François-Désiré Froment-Meurice, based on sculptor James Pradier’s work, has an upper price tag of EUR 400,000 ($415,164).

Here are the rest of the top 10:
