Back in 2006
Ellen Barkin parted with jewels she amassed while married to Revlon billionaire Ron Perelman. Now four years later a pair of earrings sold at that auction are back up for sale again. The earrings, from the legendary jewelry house JAR (founded by Joel Arthur Rosenthal) brought $710,000 back in 2006. The NY Observer reminds us
that Ellen Barkin wore these vibrant earrings with an orange dress to the Academy Awards in 2005. The ear pendants are each set with an elongated oval-cut imperial topaz surrounded by diamonds and enhanced by circular-cut ruby clusters. The earrings, now listed as the property of an art connoisseur, are mounted in silver and 18k rose gold. They carry an estimate of $300,000 to $500,000
when they go up for sale on October 20 at the same auction that will feature the Bvlgari blue diamond.
Fans of JAR can also pick up a pink sapphire ring violet ring
at the same auction. The piece, designed as a circular-cut pink sapphire violet blossom and set with a circular-cut yellow diamond pistil is estimated at $40,000 to $60,000.
