The Bulgari Blue Diamond is another goodie that was sold at the auction. It is a two-stone diamond ring which it found another owner for $15,762,500. Back in 1972 this beauty was purchased for only $1 million by an European private collector. It features a Fancy Vivid blue triangular diamond of 10.95 carats, and a 9.87 carat colorless one.

Ear Pendants by JAR Highlight Christie's October Jewels Sale

Many other jewels by famous designers were auctioned off in New York this October. Names like Cartier, Boucheron, or Van Cleef & Arpels were well represented there. More than 150 pieces were sold by a single collector!

They had to take into consideration the currency fluctuations and also the fact that precious stones have become some 20% more expensive than the year before.The Bulgari Blue Diamond Sold for Almost $15.8 Million
