christie's magnificent jewels!

Yesterday I went to the previews for the upcoming Sotheby's and Christie's Magnificent Jewels auctions. The jewels were spectacular--especially all of the rare colored diamonds. One of my highlights was getting to try on a 50 carat sapphire ring valued between $250,000 and $300,000. Unfortunately I was not allowed to try on the pink diamond ring that might go for $15m at Christie's, but I did get to admire it through the glass case. Maybe one day I will add some colored diamonds to my jewelry collection!
