PHILLIPS TO AUCTION A RARE, FANCY INTENSE BLUE DIAMOND RING
Phillips’ New York Jewels auction, scheduled for December 9, will be led by a Tiffany & Co. Fancy Intense diamond and platinum ring, estimated to sell at $1,500,000 – $2,500,000.
The 3.02-carat diamond is a fancy intense, cut-cornered square modified brilliant-cut gem. According to Phillips, Tiffany has re-cut the diamond to its highest quality, and the mounted blue diamond has “optimum brilliance, fire and scintillation”.

This diamond ring is estimated to sell for $500,000-$800,000. A further highlight in the auction is a stunning necklace made of diamonds and gold, featuring a pear modified brilliant-cut fancy blue-gray diamond weighing 3.01 carats and round brilliant-cut and fancy-shaped colored diamonds.
