Jewelry lovers it’s time to start drooling. Sotheby’s is auctioning a dazzling array of jewels this month, including a 29-carat diamond ring worth millions.

On October 19th, Sotheby’s is auctioning off a jaw-dropping collection of jewels, from a 29.53-carat flawless pear-shaped diamond ring to exquisite pieces designed by Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari, David Webb and Tiffany & Co.

The 29.53 carat pear-shaped diamond is the centerpiece of the auction. The D color, internally flawless stone carries an estimate of $1.8 to $2.2 million (or a mere $61,000 per carat). Other auction highlights include: a fancy vivid 9.55-carat yellow diamond ring by Tiffany & Co.; an 18-karat gold, diamond and amethyst “Botticelli” necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels; and a diamond butterfly brooch by Bulgari set with over 24 carats of diamonds.

The Important Jewels collection will be on display at Sotheby’s New York showroom beginning on October 14th. Peruse the catalog or drool over our favorite pics on the Jewelry.com Facebook page.
