A proposal is a paradox of emotions. It is both the most exciting adventure and the most worrisome unknown. Asking your partner for their hand in marriage is committing yourself exclusively to them. And that is commitment is symbolized, usually, with a ring. In their September 10 auction in Los Angeles, Bonhams offers many rings worthy of lifelong commitment, along with several other pieces of fine jewelry.
Highlighting the auction’s ring selection is a rhodium-plated gold band, adorned with a 3cts square brilliantly cut diamond. Surrounding the center stone are accent diamonds weighing a total of 1ct. For those with vintage tastes, a glistening European cut diamond centers an elegant platinum band crafted in 1910. Additionally, a 2.46cts round brilliant cut diamond is mounted elegantly atop a 14kt gold band, appealing especially to those preferring more traditional ring styles.
However, the rings are not the only intriguing items offered. There are elegant and colorful pieces like a necklace and earring set with alternating rubies and sapphires each set in 18k gold and surrounded by diamond accents, or a bright red coral and diamond bracelet mounted in 18k gold. These examples only scratch the surface of the beauty available in the 475-lot California Jewels auction offered by Bonhams. With price estimates ranging from $800 to $30,000, jewelry collectors and enthusiasts of all levels will enjoy this collection. Browse the entire collection and register to bid on Bonhams today.
