Available in the upcoming March Fine Jewels auction, offered by Fortuna Auction, is a 4.95-carat diamond ring. Set in platinum, the piece features a pear brilliant-cut diamond and two tapered baguette-cut diamonds. Included with the lot is a GIA report stating the gem’s D color and VVS1 clarity. According to the American Gem Society, clarity grades of 1 or 2 fall in the category of “very, very slightly included.” This means that the diamond has “… minute [imperfections] that are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification.”
Another highlighted lot is a diamond, opal, and sapphire necklace, set in platinum and gold. The cabochon-cut black opal is an uncommon variation of the stone, almost exclusively mined in the Australian town of Lightning Ridge. Due to traces of iron oxide and carbon elements, black opals tend to have darker and more vibrant colors as compared to regular opals. Shades of coral, yellow, blue, bright green and purple can all be seen in the available piece. Below the opal is a lozenge-shaped sapphire weighing approximately 2.60 carats. Flanking the sapphire are two half-moon step-cut diamonds.
Also featured is a sapphire and diamond ring from Van Cleef & Arpels. The central sapphire in this piece weighs approximately 9.0 carats and is accented by round brilliant- and baguette-cut diamonds. A Cartier Egyptian Revival diamond cuff will be presented, showing a falcon with its wings extended. The bird is detailed with round diamonds. Rounding out the sale are several emerald pieces from Orianne, including a statement necklace, a set of earrings, and an emerald and diamond bracelet.
