Dazzling Diamonds from Christie’s
Who else but Christie's New York will dish out gems like these!? Yowza! But, you do have some time to save up for a jewelry loving spurge. The auction is scheduled for April 11, 2006. Odd or maybe ironic that those of us who can only afford to eat at McDonald's can't afford to buy the jewelry from this particular auction. From Diamonds.net:
"Christie's New York will hold its Magnificent Jewels sale on April 11, 2006, which will include the Joan Kroc collection. (Kroc was the wife of fast-food chain McDonald's founder, Ray Kroc, and a well-known philanthropist.) [...]
The sale also features a number of signed pieces, including a colored diamond and emerald "Camaieu Tiger"by RenÃ© Boivin, with a pavÃ©-set colored diamond articulated body and marquise-cut emerald eyes, this unique piece offers a surprisingly realistic interpretation of this exotic animal's crouching pose through detail and execution.
Viewing begins April 6 at Christie's Galleries, 20 Rockefeller Plaza, in Manhattan."
