Bonham’s is bringing a number of exquisite yellow diamonds to its Fine Jewellery auction in New York on April 24. The popularity of yellow diamond engagement rings in Asia and some recent red-carpet sightings (as at the Academy Awards) are reminders that, while yellow diamonds are a precious investment commodity, they are also exceptionally beautiful when featured in jewellery. Below are just a few examples:
An Important Fancy Colored Diamond and Diamond Ring
Pre-auction estimates are $400,000 to $600,000 USD for this stunning piece, which features a 6.32-carat, ‘old European’ brilliant-cut, fancy vivid yellow diamond. While yellow diamonds are the most common of the fancies, it is exceedingly rare to find one of this size and with this depth of color.
