Auction house Sotheby’s is set to hold its next ‘Magnificent Jewels’ sale next week, with one particular piece catching the eye of bidders already.

A fancy vivid yellow diamond ring weighing in at more than 73 carats has already seen a bid of $2.2 million (£1.55 million) with over six days left of bidding.

Sotheby’s estimates that the ring by London gemstone specialist Glenn Spiro will go for more than $3 million (£2.11 million).

Elsewhere in the 9 June auction will be a fancy intense pink diamond ring, as well as a 25.29-carat Kashmir sapphire.

The sale is headlined by a private collection sold to benefit a charitable foundation, Sotheby’s was able to reveal.

It includes a Harry Winston emerald and diamond necklace, a 13.02-carat Burmese ruby ring, as well as a necklace set with diamonds totaling over 168 carats.

There are also mid-century classics by French makers such as Cartier, Sterlé and René Boivin, and a curated selection of ‘Mystery-Set’ jewels by Van Cleef & Arpels.
