Bonhams to Auction 22.87 Carat Diamond In Its Fine Jewelry Sale

Bonhams announce a stunning highlight to its December 13 Fine Jewelry auction, a magnificent 22.87 carat diamond solitaire ring. This is just one of a group of four exceptional jewelry pieces from a private Californian collection.

Susan Abeles, Director of Jewelry US at Bonhams, states about this acquisition, “The jewelry department at Bonhams is honored to offer this exceptional collection of jewelry. The 22.87 carat emerald-cut D color Flawless clarity, Type IIa is a rare diamond. It belongs to an exclusive category of diamonds because of its color, clarity and classification. Rarely does one find these superior qualities, which have long been associated with the historic Golconda diamonds.”

This diamond possesses the purity and transparency of water, only found in 2% of the world’s diamonds, making it extraordinary. With a pre-sale estimate of $3,000,000-3,500,000, there is no doubt that this is a stone that will be recognized by diamond connoisseurs for its exceptional attributes.

Included in the collection is a fancy yellow diamond necklace of exceptional quality with a total weight of yellow diamonds being 82.26 carats, alternating with nearly colorless diamonds weighing 27.10 carats (pre-sale est. $500,000-750,000). This necklace is also offered together in the sale with a similar bracelet and pendant earrings (pre-sale est., respectively $400,000-500,000 and $50,000-70,000).

The sale of this collection of four outstanding jewelry pieces will take place immediately following the Fine Jewelry auction in New York, simulcast in San Francisco and Los Angeles, at approximately 2 pm EST.
