When it comes to auction’s houses with the most priceless jewels, Sotheby’s is definitely a frontrunner. The auction house’s autumn sale slated for October 19 will only re-instill this belief. The auction titled Important Jewels will boast of some of the most precious and exquisite jewels and is estimated in excess of $9 million. The various jewels featured in this sale are from private American collections as well as a selection of high quality white diamonds and signed and period pieces. The centerpiece or the show stopper of this sale is the gorgeous pear-shaped diamond ring. Weighing 29.53 carats, this precious D color stone has been determined by the Gemological Institute of America to be both potentially flawless and type lla. This exquisite ring is estimated to fetch between $1,800,000 and $2,400,000 i.e. around $61,000 per carat. The ring which is on offer from the Property of a New York Estate collection is sure to fetch its estimated sum. Dazzling and shining, this ring will certainly bedazzle bidders.
