392 Carat Sapphire, Bulgari Diamond Earrings Headline the Christie’s Magnificent Jewels Sale



A 392.53 ct. Ceylon sapphire and a pair of Bulgari pear-shape diamond earrings will headline the Nov. 11 Christie’s Magnificent Jewels sale in Geneva.

The Bulgari earrings are estimated at $12 million to $15 million and feature a 6.95 ct. fancy vivid blue diamond and a 6.79 fancy vivid pink diamond.

The sapphire, which came from Ceylon, is called the Blue Belle of Asia and is “one of the largest and most important sapphires in the world,” said Rahul Kadakia, international head of Christie’s Jewelry. “It is estimated to go for $7 million to $10 million.”

Other pieces of note: a 23.66 ct. Burmese ruby ring (estimated $5.5–$7 million); a very light pink diamond necklace (estimated $3.5–$5.6 million); and seven jewels by JAR, including a Gardenia ring (estimated $330,000–$390,000). 

The company has produced a video to highlight the pieces:
