Christie’s Geneva will offer its spring sale of Magnificent Jewels on May 15, led by a truly sensational 101.73-carat, D, flawless, pear-shaped diamond along with more than 300 other lots.

Christie's expects the sale to fetch a combined total of about $65 million. Among the great selection of important diamonds on offer is a 76.91-carat, cushion-shaped diamond and an extremely rare fancy red diamond ring. The rich array of exceptional colored gemstones is highlighted by the ‘Star of Kashmir’ sapphire and by a 23-carat fine Colombian emerald ring. Natural pearls are represented by a superb necklace comprised of 23 natural pearls and by the largest pair of natural drop-shaped pearls ever recorded.
