A 103.62-carat, yellow diamond ring is expected to bring in up to CHF 3.6 million ($4.1 million) at an upcoming Sotheby’s auction in Geneva.

The claw-set, cushion modified brilliant-cut, fancy-intense-yellow diamond ring, named the Love Stone, is among several colored diamonds and gems that will star in the Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels sale, which will take place from November 6 to 8, the auction house said last week.

Sotheby’s had already revealed some of the event’s highlights, including a single-owner collection of Viennese imperial and royal jewels featuring more than 200 lots for its November 6 and 7 sales, and a rare 93.94-carat Paraiba tourmaline for its November 8 auction.

Here are some of the top items on offer on November 8:

A ring set with a cut-cornered square modified brilliant-cut, 4.42-carat, fancy-intense-green diamond with VS2 clarity could realize up to CHF 2.1 million ($2.3 million). The center gem is flanked by cut-cornered rectangular modified brilliant-cut diamonds and the gallery is pavé-set with brilliant-cut diamonds and diamonds of pink tint.
An 18-karat gold ring featuring a cut-cornered square modified brilliant-cut, 31.60-carat, fancy-vivid-yellow diamond will also go under the hammer. It carries an estimate of CHF 1.1 million to CHF 1.8 million ($1.3 million to $2 million).
The auction house will offer an 18-karat gold ring with a cushion-shaped, 3.46-carat, fancy-deep-blue diamond with VS1 clarity. It’s expected to fetch CHF 1.2 million to CHF 1.6 million ($1.3 million to $1.8 million).
Also in the lineup is a 20.52-carat diamond ring that’s set to achieve CHF 1.1 million to CHF 1.6 million ($1.2 million to $1.8 million). Set in 18-karat gold, the round-cornered rectangular step-cut stone is internally flawless with D color.
A platinum ring bearing a cut-cornered rectangular step-cut, 12.62-carat, fancy-orangey-pink diamond with VS1 clarity has a price tag of CHF 1 million to CHF1.4 million ($1.1 million to $1.6 million).
A ring with a cushion-shaped Kashmir sapphire weighing 19.03 carat is anticipated to bring in up to CHF 1.4 million ($1.5 million).
Sotheby’s predicts a platinum ring by London high-jewelry house Moussaieff will sell for CHF 910,000 to CHF 1.4 million ($1 million to $1.5 million). The piece centers a step-cut, 5.78-carat, fancy-pink diamond of VS1 clarity with pear-shaped diamond shoulders.
A platinum ring with an oval modified brilliant-cut, 4.76-carat, fancy-intense-orangey pink diamond within a border of oval diamonds is also estimated at CHF 910,000 to CHF 1.4 million ($1 million to $1.5 million).
