Christie’s New York proudly announces The Rockefeller Emerald highlighting its June 20 Magnificent Jewels New York auction. Sold on behalf of a private American Collector, this historically important gemstone is among the finest emeralds to be offered for sale at auction (Estimate: $4,000,000 – $6,000,000).

This stunning emerald was acquired in 1930 by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. as the centerpiece of a brooch given to his wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller.  Upon her death in 1948 the 18.04 carat emerald was bequeathed to their youngest son, David Rockefeller. Honouring the trusted relationship formed by his father, David Rockefeller called upon Raymond Yard to design a setting that would perfectly highlight the superior quality and beauty of what had become a family gemstone. Yard successfully executed one of his most important private commissions. This stunning stone later passed from the Rockefeller family into private ownership and is being offered on behalf of An Important American Collector, who acquired it over a decade ago, and still maintains the same magnificent setting nearly seventy years later.

Tom Burstein, Head of US Jewelry: “The Rockefeller Emerald is one of the best gemstones to ever be offered at auction and its superior beauty and quality are matched only by its historic name.  Christie’s is especially proud to be offering this Raymond Yard ring in the heart of Rockefeller Center, in our New York Saleroom.”
