A 25-piece collection of jewelry by JAR (Joel Arthur Rosenthal) is set to go up for sale at Christie’s Magnificent Jewels in Geneva next month, becoming the largest group by the designer to be auctioned.

An important art and jewelry collector accumulated the pieces, which include 15 pairs of earrings, over a 15-year period, Christie’s said last week. The entire grouping, called A Refined Eye — Fabulous Jewels by JAR, is set to go under the hammer on May 17.

Here are some of the jewels in the collection:

This set of sapphire, emerald and diamond Fan earrings have a price range of CHF 400,000 to CHF 600,000 ($436,759 to $655,138).

A pair of diamond Ivy Leaves earrings is set to fetch CHF 300,000 to CHF 500,000 ($327,569 to $545,949).

A pair of colored sapphire, colored diamond and diamond earrings will go under the hammer with an estimate of CHF 250,000 to CHF 350,000 ($272,974 to $382,164).

Christie’s has predicted these multi-gem Pansy earrings will realize between CHF 150,000 and CHF 250,000 ($163,785 to $272,974).

JAR’s amethyst, sapphire and ruby Bonnet ring is estimated at CHF 70,000 to CHF 100,000 ($76,433 to $109,190).
