Rings are many of the highlights for the Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite auction taking place in Hong Kong on April 4.

A dazzling blue diamond of 3.13cts, a D-color Internally Flawless 17.05ct diamond, three no-heat Burmese rubies set tightly together and a brilliant green jade cabochon are just some of the beautiful offerings.

Of design interest, a pair of bangles by Bhagat are a fantastic example of the designer's imaginative creativity. A carved emerald Art Deco brooch by Cartier is just one of many fine pieces from that period in the sale and I personally adore a carved jade brooch for its soft, whimsical curves.
