A Blue, Blue Diamond Ring
This diamond is a beautiful blue, and I for one couldn’t resist putting it into a post – thus giving me a chance to gaze upon it for a few minutes more than I usually would!
It’s an emerald-cut Fancy Vivid Blue diamond, 5.69 carats, set in a platinum or white gold (hard to tell) ring and flanked by shining white baguette-cut diamonds.
It is still the Property of a Lady – until actually sold at Sotheby’s ‘Magnificent Jewels’ New York auction on 5th December – and is expected to reach a price of $12M – $15M.
