Eco-Friendly, Conflict Free, 100% Real Man Made Diamonds
Tuesday, April 3, 2012
Diamonds are versatile gems you can see adorning lady's neck, ring finger, dazzling you from under the museum and shop windows and of course skyrocketing the price at well known auctions including Sotheby's.
The upcoming sales at Sotheby's are not an exception at all. April 18 is going to be a special day with exquisite jewelry offered for sale there. These are the pieces from estate collection of several women known mostly not by name but by their deeds of philanthropy. One of them is Eunice Joyce Gardiner, the wife of Robert David Lion Gardiner. Lady Gardiner was generous this time, too. Her lots comprise 47 jewels which are estimated at $2 million minimum.
Valerie Pascal Delacorte presented her jewels from Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, Buccellati and Devid Webb to gather some funds for The Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, Florida.
Nancy Blackburn Hamon's estate is quite valuable as well: 12.64-carat diamond ring and a platinum & diamond necklace or bracelet depending on how you like to wear it.
Sotherby's auction is also the place where you can see many colored rare gems, so be ready to jaw-drop at pink, yellow and blue stones this time. Such items, of course, have high presale estimate. For instance, a fancy yellow 23.02-carat ring was estimated at $1.5 million to $2 million. As usual, Sotheby's will turn into a powerful magnet for devoted collectors and buffs of one-of-a-kind things ready to part with huge sums of money to get one.
