RAPAPORT... Bonhams will spotlight a 2.17-carat Van Cleef & Arpels blue diamond ring at its upcoming sale, estimating it will fetch $800,000 to $1.2 million.

The emerald-cut, fancy-intense-blue, VVS2-clarity diamond is accented by round brilliant-cut diamonds. The piece, from a private collection, will lead the September 26 New York Jewels auction.

Other pieces from the Van Cleef collection include an oval-shaped, 21.56-carat Burmese sapphire ring flanked by diamonds, valued at $250,000 to $350,000. An emerald-cut, 6.09-carat, fancy-vivid-yellow diamond ring, surrounded by white diamonds, is estimated at $140,000 to $180,000.

The sale will also feature a round brilliant-cut, 11.11-carat, E-color, VS2-clarity diamond, which is expected to go under the hammer for $250,000 to $450,000. A 24.64-carat, fancy-yellow diamond ring, centered between two white diamonds, is valued at $270,000 to $370,000, while a cushion-shaped, modified brilliant-cut, fancy-deep-pink diamond ring weighing 2.42 carats carries an estimate of $200,000 to $300,000.

Several Art Deco pieces, including two items from the estate of German silent-film actor Joseph Schildkraut, will also be up for auction.

Bonhams will hold an exhibition tour of the pieces in Los Angeles, Hong Kong and New York prior to the sale.
