RAPAPORT... Bonhams will offer an 18.04-carat diamond at its Fine Jewelry sale in New York next month, estimating the piece at $400,000 to $600,000.

The emerald-cut, G-color, VS2-clarity diamond flanked by trillion-cut diamonds will head up the auction on December 3 at the company’s Madison Avenue location, Bonhams said Thursday.

“This is a beautiful example of a large, white diamond exhibiting sensational fire and cut,” said Caroline Morrissey, senior jewelry specialist at Bonhams New York. “It comes from a private collection, and [this] will be the first time it has appeared at auction.”

The sale will also feature a ring containing a rectangular-shaped, emerald-cut, 33.03-carat Sri Lankan (or Ceylon) sapphire flanked by a combined 1.25 carats of baguette-cut diamonds. Bonhams expects it to fetch $250,000 to $350,000.
