Twin-Stone Fancy Blue Diamond Ring Could Fetch $8 Million

Christie’s spring sale of magnificent jewels will offer a variety of colorless diamonds, colored diamonds, and gemstones, along with important signed pieces by Bulgari, Cartier, Harry Winston, Tiffany & Co., and Van Cleef & Arpels from private collections.

The highlight of the sale on April 16 is a rare twin-stone fancy vivid blue diamond ring. The ring, with stones weighing 3.06 carats and 2.61 carats, is expected to sell for between US$6 million and US$8million.

“Blue diamonds are the most elusive gemstones in the world,” says Daphne Lingon, head of jewelry at Christie’s. “Only one in 1,000,000 diamonds possess a color deep enough to qualify as ‘fancy vivid’, making these stones extremely rare.”
