The Season of Exquisite Jewels
Over the last few days, a few exquisite jewels have come in the radar. On Monday, Christie’s will auction an array of priceless, vintage jewels in New York. From fancy coloured diamonds to Bulgari’s signature zip necklace and Cartier’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs bracelet, the jewels could fetch up to $8 million.

In its iconic Magnificent Jewels auction scheduled to take place in Geneva this May, Christie’s will exhibit impressive, historic jewels like the Aquamarine and Diamond tiara from Fabergé, a stunning emerald and diamond 19th century fringe necklace and Harry Winston’s Jonker V 25.27 cts diamond ring amidst other priceless pieces.

Bonhams London will also auction some rare pieces of jewellery one of which will be a step cut 9.07 carat diamond ring with F colour, Type IIa and VVS1 clarity. All of this goes out to show that the demand for rare jewels and flawless diamonds with great polish and symmetry is in tact. Speaking of which, Graff finally unveiled its whopping 302.37 ct square emerald cut diamond from the 1109 ct Lesedi La Rona that was discovered in Botswana. It apparently took Graff a little over 18 months to cut the stone from the time of its discovery. It is the season of exquisite jewels after all!
