Bonhams will offer an array of yellow diamonds at its New York auction later this month.

The top lot will be an “old European” brilliant-cut, 6.32-carat, fancy vivid yellow, VVS1-clarity diamond set between two brilliant-cut diamonds. The entire ring is valued at $400,000 to $600,000, Bonhams said in a recent statement.

“Originating in a turn-of-the-century Tiffany & Co. six-prong solitaire ring, this diamond is a rare example of 19th-century cutting technology,” said Susan Abeles, director of US jewelry at Bonhams. “This old-fashioned cutting style, rarely found in today’s market, epitomizes old-world charm, brilliance and, above all, depth of color.”

A necklace featuring 17 cut-cornered rectangular, modified brilliant-cut, fancy yellow diamonds with a combined weight of 47.34 carats will also come under the hammer at an estimated $350,000 to $550,000. Each of the yellow diamonds is set within a round brilliant-cut diamond surround and “enhanced” by a baguette-and-round-brilliant-cut diamond panel.

Aside from yellow diamonds, the sale will feature a diamond necklace containing 63 round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 44 carats, estimated at $200,000 to $300,000.

The auction will take place on April 24.
