Christie's To Sell 'Eye of the Connoisseur' Jewels
This gorgeous pink diamond is just one of a massive collection of rare and valuable jewels called the "Eye of the Connoisseur" collection that is scheduled to go up for auction at Christie's on April 15th. Of the 115 pieces the most outstanding is this ring, featuring a 14.23 carat rectangular-cut fancy intense pink diamond set on a micro pavé-set pink diamond hoop set in 18k rose gold. Some are calling it the most important pink diamond ever to be offered up at auction. Its value is estimated at $10-$15 million.
Some of the jewels in the collection date back to the 17th century, and experts expect the auction to break more than a few records. See the whole collection here, or I picked out some of my favorites for the gallery below.
